Auburn to Host 2024 ASC Conference
The Associated Schools of Construction (ASC) will host its 60th annual conference at the McWhorter School of Building Science in spring of 2024.
The conference will take place April 2-5, 2024, at The Hotel at Auburn University, and the focus will be “Transformative Learning Experiences for Construction Educators.”
The ASC, of which Auburn is a founding member, has approximately 170 member schools from across the globe. Auburn students regularly compete in ASC competitions, with teams attending at least a half-dozen events every year. The conference began as a collaboration between several universities with construction programs. The annual summit is designed to allow the construction community to gather and share research, discuss best practices in teaching and foster partnerships between academia and industry. Nearly 130 papers on various areas of research and education are anticipated to be presented at the 2024 conference.
Over the years, many universities have hosted ASC, and the conference is an excellent opportunity for schools to show off their curriculum and facilities. It is especially pertinent for Auburn to host as it was one of seven charter members that were present at ASC’s inaugural meeting of ASC 1965. Auburn was set to host the ASC conference in 2021 but it was cancelled due to COVID-19. This is the fourth time Auburn will be hosting the conference, having previously hosted in 1969, 1992 and 2008.
