Are you an accounting or financial administrator looking to enrich your professional skills? Attend one of the nation’s most prominent higher education accounting conferences to get the most out of your training and travel budget. CACUBO’s Higher Education Accounting Workshop is designed to give participants an overview of college and university accounting concepts, as well as the basic format institutions use to present their financial statements.


As the Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB) and the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) introduce changes to accounting standards, the CACUBO Higher Education Accounting Workshop keeps you up-to-date on the latest requirements. We also offer time for participants to discuss the issues they’re facing and practical ways to implement new standards.

If you’re interested in deepening your understanding of financial reporting, you’ll find the content at this CACUBO higher education accounting conference valuable. There are sessions dedicated to the practical application of GASB and FASB accounting concepts, for both state and private colleges and universities.

2018 Higher Education Accounting Workshop

The 2018 Higher Education Accounting Workshop was held in Omaha, Nebraska, at the brand new Omaha Marriott Downtown Hotel in the Capitol District. The live event was geared for all knowledge levels and had no prerequisite requirements. Participants attending the workshop were eligible to earn up to 17 hours of CPE credits.

The CACUBO program featured both GASB and FASB tracks for both state and private institutions. The tracks were designed to give participants an overview of college and university accounting concepts, as well as, a synopsis of the basic formats used by higher education institutions when presenting their financial statements. The featured concurrent tracks also delved into the recent changes by GASB and FASB to accounting standards and the anticipated effects of those changes within the higher education industry. In addition to the featured tracks, participants had a choice of a half day of additional GASB content or a half day workshop on Key Performance Measures using their own institution’s financial statements. Also, back by popular demand for 2018, was the expanded afternoon “Hot Topic” sessions. These sessions encompassed the topics of Endowments, Financial Modeling, Overall Higher Ed Issues, and Fraud/Cybersecurity.
