Below you will find a list of current sessions available during Blackbaud University Day.  In order to help us gauge the interest and whether additional repeat sessions should be added, anyone that has purchased a BBU Day pass or All Access Pass should choose their sessions of interest. You can do this at time of registration or you can go back into your registration record and add it from the "Additional Selections" page.  Session times should be available in mid-August. 

All of the Raiser’s Edge, Financial Edge, Financial Edge NXT, and Blackbaud Grantmaking courses are in LAB rooms.

All Raiser’s Edge NXT, Blackbaud Award Management, ResearchPoint, Altru and Luminate Online classes are in BYOL rooms.

All Organizational Best Practices sessions are Group.

Description of the room types:

  • Lab rooms are equipped with computers that allow you to log into a sample environment to complete activities throughout the session. Session handouts will also be distributed.
  • Group rooms are designed to get conversations going around particular topics. Think brainstorming and networking via roundtables. Session handouts will also be distributed.
  • BYOL rooms give you the option to “Bring Your Own Laptop”. Don’t worry, we will still provide you with a sample database environment during these sessions, but we won’t be providing devices to use. Not interested in using a computer during these sessions? That’s fine! You can simply listen and take notes via the session handout.
