Ed Kania, vice president for business and finance and treasurer, recently received the Service to NACUBO award for his extensive contributions to NACUBO’s professional development programs. The National Association of College and University Business Officers (NACUBO) is a membership organization representing more than 1,900 colleges and universities across the country.
NACUBO specifically represents chief business and finanical officers through advocacy efforts, community service, and professional development activities. The association’s mission is to advance the economic viability, business practices, and support for higher-education institutions in fulfillment of their missions.
The Service to NACUBO Award recognizes outstanding individual contributions to NACUBO professional development activities as well as the association’s publication programs. Kania received this award for his numerous contributions to NACUBO and regional associations, including participating in NACUBO’s “CBO Speaks” podcast, serving on multiple committees and as a NACUBO mentor, contributing to several publications, and presenting on the topics of endowment and debt management.
“NACUBO award recipients exemplify the best of the sector,” says NACUBO president and CEO Susan Whealler Johnston. “I am particularly pleased to recognize these outstanding individuals at such a critical point for American higher education. As we face both significant challenges and great opportunities, we need business leaders like these. They help us innovate, excel, and create sustainable business models, allowing us to continue to provide opportunity for students.”
