Pivoting Forward: The Current Financial Picture in Higher Ed


Watch a webcast recording where our experts connect with the broader higher education community to share ideas and answer questions as campuses continue to navigate the COVID-19 crisis.

Overview

The financial impact to higher education due to the current crisis has been significant, with many colleges and universities announcing cost-cutting measures in recent weeks. It is imperative that institutions pivot and adjust in order to remain financially viable, but with so much uncertainty surrounding fall semester and the course of the pandemic, the way forward is unclear. What creative strategies are other university leaders employing? How are other institutions managing through?

Watch the recording of this lively conversation with Audra Kahr, Chief Financial Officer at Cedar Crest College. You will hear from our expert and your fellow attendees as they describe their current practices and approaches to four key areas that are critical to institutional financial viability moving forward:

  1. Personnel-related decisions
    How are others proceeding with layoffs, furloughs, pay cuts, and hiring freezes?
  2. Academic program planning
    What conversations are occurring around academic program mix and formats at present moment?
  3. Pricing models
    What pricing models are institutions exploring in tandem with different educational delivery options for fall semester?
  4. Governmental support
    How are others collaborating and engaging in advocacy work to maximize state and federal support?

Who should attend?

This discussion is best suited for presidents, provosts, chief financial officers, chief enrollment officers, and others who are closely involved in conversations and decision-making around institutional budget and finances.
