Our Facility

The Rizzo Conference Center

The Rizzo Conference Center is nestled in the college town of Chapel Hill, N.C., just a few miles from UNC’s main campus. Designed and built solely for use as an executive development facility, the Rizzo Conference Center sits on twenty-eight beautifully landscaped acres. The Rizzo Conference Center, featuring the historic DuBose House, world-class hotel and amenities, and state-of-the-art classrooms, creates the perfect setting to support meaningful reflection and lasting learning. See Rizzo Virtual Tours for more details and photos of the conference center.

The Paul J. Rizzo conference center campus and facilities were designed specifically to create a supportive retreat for executive development.
