The CAUCE conference celebrates and recognizes innovation and excellence in the field of continuing education, and will provide a mix of professional development, concurrent sessions, social events, and networking opportunities.

Host

University of Calgary Continuing Education

University of Calgary Continuing Education provides high-quality programs and courses to adult learners in our community and beyond. Students seeking opportunities for professional development and personal enrichment take a wide range of extension seminars, courses, certificates, and diploma programs.

Over 400 instructors, including academics and practitioners who are experts in their field, facilitate adult learning in the classroom and online. Our corporate clients look to our extensive experience to deliver training that quickly and easily transfers to the workplace.

The University of Calgary is a global intellectual hub located in Canada’s most enterprising city. In our spirited, high-quality learning environment, students thrive in programs made rich by research, hands-on experiences and entrepreneurial thinking. Our strategy drives us to be recognized as one of Canada’s top five research universities, engaging the communities we both serve and lead. This strategy is called Eyes High, inspired by the university's Gaelic motto, which translates as 'I will lift up my eyes.'

Calgary’s got small-town heart and big-city diversions. Between street festivals, nightlife and all the things to do outside, the work-hard, play-hard approach is in this city’s veins. Need proof? Every July, the Calgary Stampede transforms the city into a Wild West-inspired playground. It’s 10 days of infinite free pancakes.

● Day Trip: Pedal the city’s 800 kilometres of paved pathways. The path winds past public art and through protected parks and riverside retail neighbourhoods.

● Eat up: There are enough beer halls, cocktail bars, top-notch restaurants and casual dining options to keep you for fed and watered without repeats for a long, long time.

● Explore: Do like the locals do: Make the city your home base for adventures in the Rockies and Badlands.
