Successfully navigate the complex task of reallocating resources at your institution.
Years of budget cuts and declining enrollments have left many institutions without the resources they need to grow. While reallocating existing resources is the most likely source of new funds, doing so is not an easy task.
Using the Dickeson model for prioritizing programs, you will learn proven and practical models for reallocating resources. We will walk you through the nuts and bolts of how to reallocate resources, including strategies for managing the politics and pushback such efforts inevitably confront.
This program will be highly interactive and discussion-based. While the concepts of reallocation have been successfully used in many campus settings, there is no one template for successful implementation. A variety of cultural and economic factors will influence an institution’s approach. As such, this program will focus on the application of these concepts to your specific campus context.
In working with dozens of institutions over the last ten years on this issue of reallocation, our expert presenters have compiled dozens of valuable resources-- guiding documents, sample templates, rubrics, decision making guides, etc.-- and they have generously shared all of these resources in your conference materials. These resources can be an important and valuable way to accelerate your efforts.
Given the leadership support required to successfully implement such an effort, we have designed this program for teams of institutional executives. We strongly encourage both the chief financial officer and chief academic officer to attend the program together. If your institution is early in the process of considering whether and how to reallocate resources, we encourage your institution’s president to attend as part of your team. Meaningfully reallocating resources also requires strong faculty participation so we encourage faculty leaders to attend as part of the larger team. Our approach is a data-intensive effort and requires significant support from the IR office; as such, we encourage representatives from institutional research to attend as well.
