Title

The APCU is hosting a Third Thursday Innovation Conversation each month during 2021 to share and discuss recent innovations that have emerged on APCU campuses. These hour-long virtual conversations will provide an informal opportunity for APCU presidents to learn from each other about best practices they've developed to enhance success in areas such as fund-raising, enrollment management, course delivery, and student life.

Each Third Thursday Innovation Conversation will take place at 3:00 p.m. eastern time and be sponsored by an APCU Strategic Partner. The Conversation will begin with a brief introduction to the partner followed by an overview of that month's innovation from the APCU president (or other campus leader) responsible for it. Participants will then have the opportunity to engage in an informal discussion about the innovation and other relevant topics.

To learn more about a conversation and register to participate in it, just click the calendar icon for that particular month. If you have an innovation that you'd like to share with other APCU presidents, click the link below to submit that for a Third Thursday Innovation Conversation!
