Competency Symposium 2017
Competencies Symposium 2018:
Strategies for Institutional-wide Competency Development

You’re invited to the Competency Symposium 2018
at Washington University in St. Louis!

Competency development is essential for student success for life after graduation. Universities are integrating this initiative campus-wide by infusing intentional student learning mapped to competencies into the curriculum and co-curriculum. Clemson University, The University of Tampa, Kansas State University, and Washington University in St. Louis, in partnership with the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE), are co-hosting a “Strategies for Institutional-wide Competency Development” symposium on May 23 and 24, 2018 on the campus of Washington University in St. Louis.

Whether you attended the symposium last year or are a first-time attendee, you will have the opportunity to strategically advance the infusion of competency development at your institution., The symposium will benefit institutions from beginner to advanced on your unique journey of competency development infusion.

We have designed this symposium to bring faculty, employers, campus administrators, career services staff, and other campus partners together to discuss strategic, campus-wide approaches. Institutions will be encouraged to bring teams, but individuals may also benefit from this experience and will have the opportunity to connect with other individual attendees.
