Bring your team to prioritize your most important academic and administrative programs.
Many institutions have been operating in a financially unsustainable way for many years. Campus leaders now face critical questions and challenges as they are forced to reduce or restructure their program offerings:
Join Bob Dickeson and Larry Goldstein for an in-depth examination of a proven method for prioritizing academic and administrative programs.
This program is based in large part on Bob Dickeson’s book, Prioritizing Academic Programs and Services. Included in your registration fee is a complimentary copy of this resource-rich book which can be helpful as a guide to the process and to building buy-in for this effort.
This program is highly focused on the application of these concepts to your specific campus context. The output from the various group activities will be documented and shared out to each participant after the program, so you can take back a range of ideas and solutions that might work for your campus.
Every attendee will receive free access to this highly rated recording upon conference registration. This webcast explores the basic concepts of academic and administrative program prioritization to ensure an institution’s resources are creating the greatest value. Share this resource with your team!
Given the leadership support required to successfully implement such an effort, we have specially designed this program for teams of institutional executives. Chief financial officer and chief academic officers should consider attending this event as a team. Program prioritization is a data-intense effort and representatives from institutional research will benefit from attending as well. If your institution is early in the process of considering how prioritization can work for your campus, we encourage your institution’s president to attend.
