2019 Conference Details Coming Soon - Regional campuses enjoy ties to their home campus and resources that can add depth and robust support. The branch benefits from connections to the brand and are directly impacted by policy and funding decisions of governing boards and policy decisions of formal governing bodies (e.g., Faculty Senate), as well as other key committees forming policy. This conference focuses on:

  1. The role of governance, policy, and stakeholder advice at institutions of higher education.
  2. What branches may consider in structuring appropriate and respectful means to help such groups understand the role branch campuses serve and collaboratively working with such groups to fulfill their mission.
  3. As campus leaders, how can our campuses inform and participate in appropriate forums of shared governance decision making and perhaps shape awareness and an agenda for advancing the regional campus mission?
