CAO Pre-MAC 2 Workshop
Current and aspiring Chief Academic Officers with at least one year of experience in an academic leadership role are invited to a MAC 2 pre-conference workshop titled “Human and Financial Resources for Mission Impact: A Peer-Learning Workshop for Chief Academic Officers” on Wednesday, February 28, 2024. The workshop will be held from approximately 12:30-5:00pm at the MAC 2 conference site in San Diego, and will address topics of importance to CAOs based on input provided to us from CCCU CAOs earlier this year.

The Multi-Academic Conference always features distinguished speakers involved in the latest and emerging trends impacting Christian higher education. These leaders range from numerous backgrounds including data analytics, government relations, media and emerging technologies, and Christian leadership, among others.
