Annual UNCG Conference

UNCG 2022 Conference

Reconnecting & Connecting: Making Community

June 22 - 24, 2022 in Boise, Idaho

Hosted by the University of Idaho's McClure Center for Public Policy Research 

Join the University Network for Collaborative Governance at our annual conference for connection, reconnection, and making community together as a network.

UNCG will be meeting in-person this year on June 22-24 in Boise, Idaho.  We want this conference to be a time of reconnection, connection, and making community together.  The past few years have asked all of us to navigate new waters in a number of ways, including in our own teaching, research, and practice in the field of collaborative governance.  Our communities have also had to face new challenges and consider how to work collaboratively (or not) with one another to meet those challenges and opportunities.  Join us to reconnect with our work as a network to connect with new and long-time friends and colleagues.  

The UNCG Conference is open to all people interested in collaborative governance and connections to a college or university. UNCG has student and working professional memberships.  Members receive a discount on conference registration fees. Pay your annual dues or join UNCG here.
