Theme

Connections Matter: The Impact of CE on University Innovation, Collaboration, and Access

University continuing education plays a unique role in higher education. With a focus on the future of work and the desire to build healthier, stronger communities, our positions connect universities at large to the communities that surround us.    

We are true connectors who combine expertise, knowledge, research, data and our own creativity to deliver high-quality, high-impact learning experiences to a variety of diverse learners. From researchers with advanced degrees seeking specific skills, to language learners attending university for the first time, to individuals entering or re-entering the workforce, to those changing their career path, people choose our programming because it provides a pathway to lifelong learning for both personal and professional development.   

As educators, our connections drive innovation, expand efficiency, promote collaboration, increase access and extend the impact of our universities. Through our ability to work collaboratively, and build partnerships, we can achieve exceptional impact.    

This year we will explore the ways in which Connections Matter as our virtual CAUCE conference theme. This theme will guide our conversations throughout #CAUCE2022 as we meet online to share our knowledge and expertise in innovation, collaboration, and access in higher education.
