Please join us for the 2022 Foundation Conversation, a biennial conference hosted by the Council of Independent Colleges to provide senior academic leaders with insight into the philosophies and priorities of key philanthropic organizations that include higher education in their giving.
Historically, the Foundation Conversation has been a face-to-face event exclusively for CIC member presidents. This year’s virtual program is being offered free of charge to presidents, chief academic officers, and chief advancement officers at CIC member institutions.
The theme for this year’s Foundation Conversation is “New Priorities for Changing Times.” The program includes three webinars, each addressing a shared focus area between foundations and independent higher education.
