Conference History

The first Dual Career Conference was held on April 25, 2003 by The University of Iowa’s Dual Career Network (DCN).  The major goals of this conference were to establish benchmark practices among existing programs and provide universities without programs information on current trends and practices.

A questionnaire was distributed prior to the conference to dual career programs across the country. The results of that survey were published in the CUPA HR Journal (Fall/Winter 2003, Vol. 54, No. 3). (View the CUPA Article)

Since 2003, this conference has been held annually by member institutions.  See list of university hosts below.
