CACUBO’s Leadership Institute is an immersive higher education leadership development experience. This two-day intensive workshop helps professionals advance their careers and institutions elevate their teams. Join us for this higher education leadership conference to work alongside your peers as you hone your leadership skills.

Although some people appear to be “natural born” leaders, leadership skills are usually learned behaviors. The Leadership Institute is designed specifically for individuals who wish to sharpen their leadership skills, discover new solutions to age-old problems, or who want a jolt of fresh enthusiasm at this point in their career. It will also equip high-potential employees, who will soon be assuming new responsibilities.

The curriculum of this institute changes each year in order to offer fresh, exciting and relevant content for CACUBO members.  The Institute is open to all CACUBO members whether or not they have attended other Leadership Institute sessions. The intent is to guide an individual through the stages of their career with a focus on working with teams, inspiring staff, improving morale and negotiating change.

2020 Leadership Institute

The 2020 CACUBO Leadership Institute is scheduled from August 3-4 at the Crossroads Hotel in Kansas City, MO. CPE hours will be available to attendees.

More information about this two-day, interactive, team-building Institute will be coming soon!


Crossroads Hotel (2101 Central Street, Kansas City MO 64108) is at its core about community and connection. Kansas City’s famed Pabst and Pendergast buildings now have a whole new story to tell. Reimagined as the community-driven Crossroads Hotel, the hotel is steeped in the city’s past and busy making its future. The energy, creativity and passion that define Kansas City and neighborhood can call this place home.
