DIFFICULT FACULTY OR CONSTRUCTIVE DEBATE?
9:45 AM to 11:00 AM in M2 - Marquis Salons 12-13
Faculty can be industrious, determined, and strong promoters of their positions. Whatever the position, faculty often see their efforts as benefiting the institution and the communities they inhabit. Institutional leaders may see these efforts as obstinacy that can wreak havoc on their ability to foster institutional progress and health. This leader-to-leader session explores what academic leaders can do when individual or collective faculty resistance risks scuttling long-term institutional objectives.

Wendy Raymond, Davidson College
Facilitator: Martha Potvin, ACAO Director, Springfield College
TAKING CHARGE: FUNDRAISING FOR ACADEMIC LEADERS
2:00 PM to 3:15 PM in M2 - Marquis Salons 12-13
Three-quarters of chief academic officers report that limited resources are a major hurdle for achieving institutional goals. With such high stakes, a closer look at fundraising’s potential is in order. Effective academic fundraisers often sidestep the resource reallocation maze that can be as politically challenging as it is difficult. How do they do it? What separates the best CAO fundraisers from those who are merely adequate? What can CAOs start doing now to be more effective with donors? These questions and others will be explored during the session.
Michael Sinkus, Marts & Lundy
Introduction: Paul Starkey, ACAO Director, Pennsylvania College of Technology
PROMISING FACULTY ROLES IN RECRUITMENT AND RETENTION
3:30 PM to 4:45 PMM2 - Marquis Salons 12-13
There is a growing sense that faculty involvement in student recruitment and retention could boost enrollment and improve student persistence. Early research suggests that faculty interest and effectiveness in these efforts varies. This panel session considers the wide range of approaches taken by institutions and identifies common themes for successful faculty engagement.
