The Council on Strategic Communications 2017 Summer Meeting

Sunday, July 16 - Tuesday, July 18

Seattle, Washington

APLU's Council on Strategic Communications (CSC) 2017 Summer Meeting brings together senior public affairs and communications leaders from public universities. The meeting will be held on Monday, July 17 and Tuesday, July 18 in Seattle, Washington, with a welcome reception on Sunday, July 16 at 5 p.m.

The CSC’s summer meeting provides an excellent opportunity to network with peers from other public and land-grant universities, exchange best practices, and develop new ideas to improve strategic communications efforts.

This year’s meeting will offer compelling sessions with leading communications experts, including: navigating internal communications with Alaska Airlines and the Gates Foundation; addressing an increase in student activism and controversial speakers on campus; crisis and issues management with Microsoft leaders; effectively communicating the value of higher education; and more.

Attendees will also visit University of Washington’s CoMotion headquarters for a virtual reality experience, tour Microsoft’s Cyber Defense Operations Center, and more.
