ACE/NACUBO Workshop to Enhance Collaboration Between CAOs and CBOs

April 04, 2018


​Never before has the relationship between the chief academic officer (CAO) and the chief business officer (CBO) mattered more to the effective leadership of colleges and universities. 

Together, these individuals must develop a clear strategy and be effective in its execution, seek ways to align priorities and budgets, and innovate. Each requires the other to be effective and advance the institution they serve.

To help better understand and support this important relationship, ACE and the National Association of College and University Business Officers (NACUBO) will bring together CAOs and CBOs for a two-day workshop on how to build successful partnerships and meet current institutional challenges.

The 2018 event will be held Aug. 6-7 in Washington, DC. 

The action-based workshop focuses on the dynamics between CBOs and CAOs and will help them develop solutions to the obstacles they face individually and collectively. The program will also help participants: 

  • Identify strategies that build relationships and improve the ability to achieve institutional goals; 
  • Employ approaches that encourage strategic communication; and
  • Recognize challenges that interfere with effective engagement.

Institutions are encouraged to send their CAO and CBO as a team in order to receive a discount. Space is limited, so interested participants should register and find more information here.
