About the Conference
The ULSCA Annual Conference is an opportunity for higher education supply chain professionals to network, share best practices & evolving challenges, and develop strategic partnerships with our peers, colleagues, and suppliers. Attendees include Supply Chain & Logistics Directors and Staff of Big 10, SEC, Big Twelve, ACC, and Pac-12 institutions of higher education, who come together to share supply chain best practices in a cooperative learning environment.
This year’s conference will include presentations from member schools and strategic partners in the areas of technology innovation, integration of supply chain/logistics operations, forging internal & external relationships, best practices, and KPIs. We will also have an opportunity to visit beautiful downtown Lynchburg as well as other parts of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
Liberty University looks forward to welcoming you to beautiful Lynchburg for the conference in October!
