2019 Campus Ministry, Provosts, & Student Development Conference

Mark your calendar!

We hope you plan to join us at the 2019 Multi-Academic Conference, February 13-15, 2019. This event will bring together three different areas of expertise from across campuses: Campus Ministry, Academic Affairs/Provosts, and Student Development. The conference aim is to connect professionals in order to talk about the latest challenges, offer best practices, and to worship and encourage one another in the mission of Christian higher education.

Attendees of this event have the unique opportunity to network and learn with a diverse group of campus leaders on issues impacting all of Christian higher education and the world around us, while also having intentional, dedicated time to spend with peers in your specific area of expertise in breakout sessions focused on sharing best practices, resources, and trends.

Registration will open this summer, so please continue to check back for more details!
