The change in higher education's competitive landscape has become a challenge for colleges and universities across the country. Institutions struggle to match revenues with expenditures, while simultaneously trying to cope with lower net revenue per student, rising labor costs, evolving consumer behaviors, and shifting student demographics. As a result, institutions are forced to address critical business model issues. Governing boards, as the fiduciaries of the institution, have an opportunity to lead in this area by partnering with the administration to address key business model issues.
Join AGB for this workshop that provides board members and administrators with insights their institutions need to prosper in a time of uncertainty. Sessions at the workshop will address such topics as:
- Innovations taking place outside of the academy walls
- Institutional financial statements with a focus on quality of performance
- Funding models
- Revenue growth initiatives and planning
- Developing institutional plans for investments of sustainability
Board leaders and administrators are encouraged to attend together, so that as a team they can gain new insights into the macro trends shaping higher education; understand the rapid pace of change of innovation outside of the academy; acquire alternative strategies for revenue growth; and, develop a strategy and framework to return to their institutions for additional consideration and discussion for engagement on campus.
