CECE meetings

Upcoming CECE Conferences

CECE convenes a conference each summer to bring together its members focused on economic and community engagement. CECE occasionally will meet jointly with other APLU councils and commissions that have shared interests, projects, or priorities. CECE also organizes program tracks for the APLU Annual Meeting, the world’s largest convening of public university presidents, provosts, vice-presidents, and their staff, every November. Questions regarding the program? Contact APLU’s Milan Ephraim (mephraim@aplu.org).
