There will be parking at the University Conference Center, and all attendees are encouraged to obtain a virtual parking permit from the Parking & Transportation Department or University Police Department before parking on campus. Daily permits are free of charge. Weekend Parking, Friday after 3:00pm, Saturday and Sunday, no permit is required. If a visitor receives a parking citation for no parking permit during the week, they should immediately notify the Parking & Transportation Department for instructions. The department will decide if the citation(s) can be cleared as a guest or if the ticket(s) should proceed with an appeal (decision based on the customer’s account and citation violation). 

Lunch will not be provided, but the MSW program will provide coffee and light refreshments. Attendees will have an hour to grab lunch at a nearby restaurant.

There are two options to share your agency’s resources. 1) Bring brochures to leave at a shared resource table with other information. 2) Sign up to be a vendor when you register for the conference. In the event you are not sure your agency would like to have a vendor table at the time of individual registration, you can sign up as a vendor at a later time.

No, you can register for one day if needed. However, you will need to attend the full day you registered for to receive CEUs.

We recommend business casual. The building might get cold, so please bring layers.

You will be given an opportunity to speak to a social work faculty member at the conference.
