Paying Tribute

NACUBO salutes the generations of leaders and mentors who have nurtured its growth.

*From regional associations that arose in the early 20th century, to a loose national federation formed in 1950, and finally to a formal association officially created on June 23, 1962, NACUBO has benefited from the wisdom and vision of hundreds of men and women. Those listed here are representative of countless others who have held office, served on boards, worked on committees, and received recognition for their efforts. Building on the foundation these individuals have prepared, the National Association of College and University Business Officers continues its tradition of vital leadership into its next half-century.
