Educational Tracks

Student Track – This track is specifically geared for undergraduate and graduate students to help network with each other and make the most of your experiences. This track will feature ed. sessions presented by students and an exclusive two-hour session with ACUI Executive Director Marsha Herman-Betzen.

Seasoned Professional Track – A little different than a standard track, the seasoned professional track is made up of three events tailored for those who have been in the Association and field for more than 20 years.

The events are:

  • An informal lunch that gives you the opportunity to meet students and younger professionals. 
  • A special panel of vice presidents from the Region who will share their stories and take your questions. 
  • An assessment session led by faculty from ACPA’s Assessment Institute. 
  • The rest of the conference will be yours to explore, enjoy, and engage with your colleagues both new and old. 

Interested in having lunch with a seasoned professional? You can do so Friday, Oct. 10 at Noon. This unique experience will let you engage and connect with a professional who’s been in the Association and field for 20 or more years. This is a great opportunity to gain some insight and learn from the standard bearers of our Region. Each small group will meet and enjoy lunch (cost not included) at one of Blacksburg’s downtown restaurants. Specifically intended for students and new professionals.
