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" for unit leaders. Each Scoutmaster or Cubmaster should take all leaders to this learning extravaganza. There are sections 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. MeritBadge.Org provides Scouting University resources for a wide range of topics.
