Annual Conference

November 8-10, 2017

We are excited to welcome you to Omaha, Nebraska for UMR 2017: The Crossroads of Change! UMR 2017 is being co-hosted by the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) and the University of Nebraska – Lincoln (UNL).

When considering a theme for the 2017 UMR-ACUHO conference, the host committee agreed that while both of our schools and our field are steeped in tradition, one of the only constants in college and university housing is change.

Every year, our students change – they become more tech savvy, more open to new experiences, and more involved. Our processes change and adapt to best serve our students and our departments continue to learn and grow with these advancements. Political, cultural, and societal forces also tend to shift our focus and require our attention. All of these changing factors validate the need for today’s professionals to be agile in our responses, approaches, and take time to plan strategically.

Nebraska is fortunate enough to be right in the center of the United States, a crossroads of the country, where change happens every day. UNO and UNL believe that UMR-ACHUO members will thrive on the opportunity to meet here at the Crossroads of Change and submerge themselves in the innovations and developments that all of our institutions bring to the conference each year.

We look forward to seeing you in Omaha, Nebraska in 2017 for “The Crossroads of Change”!
