History

The Conferences and Institutes Division of the National University Association was established in 1949 and confined its first activities to the preparation of a program for the NUEA annual convention in Bend, Oregon in 1951. As one of the five main divisions of the NUEA (the others being the Division of Audiovisual Communications, the Division of Community Development, the Division of Correspondence Study and the Division of Evening Colleges and Class Extension), the Conferences and Institutes Division stated its purpose as providing "for continuing consideration of the principles, practices, and standards by which conferences and institutes are conducted by colleges and universities." Under the chairmanship of Dr. Stanley Robinson, the C & I Division enjoyed growth throughout the early 1950s.

The C & I Division has worked to facilitate the planning, organizing, arranging and administration of conferences, institutes and other special courses of instruction at its member institutions. The papers of the C & I Division reflect the organization's concerns over a broad band of issues relating to continuing education.
