Case Study Competition

The NACURH Annual Conference Case Study Competition asks students (and advisors!) to develop a response to a campus leadership related problem. Participating in Case Studies gives attendees the opportunity to develop solutions and practice critical thinking in response to a variety of leadership, ethical, and societal based scenarios.


Case Studies ask participants to develop and deliver a presentation to share their approach to addressing the problem on Friday, June 25. High scoring Case Studies will be invited to present their findings again during a special programming block on Sunday, June 27th. Case Studies are eligible to be recognized for the top scoring Case Study in each category, and best overall Case Study.
