Registration Now Open for Higher Ed Symposium

Blowing up HR isn't the answer … so what is? That’s the question this year’s Higher Ed Symposium (hosted by CUPA-HR's Western Region) will aim to answer, February 28-March 1 in Tempe, Arizona. We’ll kick off the symposium in a big way with an interactive session with Dr. Peter Cappelli, author of the recent, provocative Harvard Business Review articles "Why We Love to Hate HR … and What HR Can Do About It" and "Why Blowing Up HR Isn’t the Answer." You'll also participate in highly interactive workshops to discuss HR strategies for supporting institutional priorities; how data can be used to support those strategies; and how to form partnerships across the institution that will help you put strategies into action.

Online Registration Ends February 19
