Canadian Association of College and University Student Services (CACUSS) is a professional bilingual association representing and serving those individuals who work in Canadian post-secondary institutions in student affairs and services.
Since 1973, CACUSS has provided professional development services and programs for members in all the Canadian provinces. Cross-divisional interest groups called communities of practice and networks were formed by members in 2015 based on their professional needs, focusing on areas such as student health and wellness, first-year students, new professionals, and leadership education.
The annual CACUSS conference is the largest gathering of student affairs and registrarial professionals in Canada. For its 45th year, CACUSS will bring together over 800 professionals to share best practices, research and programs related to registrarial administration, student learning, success and wellness. It features three full days of learning in over 150 educational workshops, keynote speaker(s), poster presentations and more.
