LEXINGTON, Ky. (August 3, 2004) -- The 52 nd annual College Business Management Institute (CBMI) is being held at the University of Kentucky through Aug. 6. The event is sponsored by UK and the Southern Association of College and University Business Officers.

CBMI, a three-year program, offers an intensive course study in business and financial management for administrators of colleges and universities. Over 600 administrators from 30 states and territories participated in 2003, representing institutions of every size and description.

“This year, we have about 725 participants in the conference,” said Ben Crutcher, UK ’s associate vice president for Auxiliary Services. “CBMI is designed to provide participants with an overview of current issues and procedures applicable to institutions of higher education, large and small, public and private.”
