Associated Schools of Construction Annual International Conference

Monday, April 5th - Friday, April 9th, 2021

The Associated Schools of Construction (ASC) is a professional association for the development and advancement of construction education, where the sharing of ideas and knowledge inspires, guides and promotes excellence in curricula, teaching, research, and service.

Because of the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic, the ASC Board has voted to conduct the 2020 International Convention virtually. We will continue to offer peer-reviewed conference proceedings as well as teaching roundtable sessions, committee sessions, and regional business meeting sessions.
