or SU
The University of Scouting is also known as a Pow Wow or Scouting University and is an annual training event for Boy Scout, Varsity, Cub Scout, and Venturing leaders. These training conferences are for leaders from an entire council or district and take place in a festive atmosphere. Most classes are taught by volunteers who share not just their knowledge but their passion about their subject.

The University of Scouting is a one-day "convention." Each Scoutmaster or Cubmaster should take all leaders to this learning extravaganza. Often, a leader can chose up to two morning and two afternoon sessions. Some classes take two sessions and others are all day. A small Scouting University might only have 10 classrooms in use and might only offer 230 different classes. Many offer a wide variety of topics with some classes offered more than once.

There could be sessions on new leader training, skills, advancement, activities, ceremonies, and administration. It's a time for experienced, new, and prospective leaders to share ideas and see what the other troops and packs are doing. Often the ones who learn the most are the volunteer instructors. The way to really learn a topic is to teach it.
