Unmute Yourself 2021 is a 4 day learning experience for professionals new to the world Housing and Residence Life. It is an opportunity to connect with others within their first years of the field while learning from experienced leaders from across different functional areas. This year the conference is being hosted virtually by the OACUHO board with support by professionals from across the region.  

Unmute is a phrase we hear often these days. When looking at NPTI 2021, we want our new professionals to continue to find their voice while learning theory and practice that will give them a foundation to move forward into the world with confidence.

Unmute Yourself 2021 will be taking place from May 17th to 20th 2021.
