Competency Symposium

Looking Ahead to the 2022 Competency Symposium

The Competency Symposium Planning Team hopes to welcome you to an in-person event in Austin, Texas in 2022. We understand that many may not have the funds or the ability to attend an in-person event. In the fall of 2021, we will gather participant feedback to gage which event format will best serve attendees. We look forward to continuing the conversation of competency development with you!

5th Annual Competency Symposium: Virtual Series

Competency development is essential for students as they prepare for and successfully transition to life after graduation. Colleges and universities are integrating this initiative throughout their campuses by infusing intentional competency-based student learning into the curriculum and co-curriculum.

Our free and engaging virtual series is designed to discuss and share strategic institution-wide approaches to career competency within the framework of our foundational outcomes: academic achievement, career readiness, life preparedness, and social justice. Each pillar session will feature facilitated conversations with different guests followed by a time for questions. Follow the links below for each pillar session to learn more about each session and to register.
