Ready or Not, Here They Come: Preparing the Next Generation of Students for our Changing Economy

Sunday, March 11, 2018

9:45–11:10 a.m.

M2

Marquis Salons 12-13

In this session, we will examine six major demographic trends that will impact higher education in the coming decades. These trends will dramatically change who attends college and will create a demand for significant changes in what students need to learn, how they need to learn and the support and services that will be needed to facilitate their success and ensure that they can actively participate in and contribute to the regional, national and global economy. Participants will leave this session with an understanding of the demographic shifts that will affect their institutions and be better prepared to lead their institutions through the transformation that will be needed to ensure global competitiveness.

Bench Strength: Developing Deans, Department Chairs, and Directors

Sunday, March 11, 2018

M2

Marquis Salons 12-13

In this session, three experienced Chief Academic Officers will share their experience and insight into creating a robust team within academic affairs that can effectively respond to new or changing demands, recover from crises and setbacks, and allow for smooth ongoing operation through changes in leadership. To be effective colleges and universities need effective institutional leaders at the cabinet level and throughout the organization. During this session, panelists will share best practices for developing these institutional leaders to ensure that they have the knowledge, skills and dispositions to contribute to an institution’s success and to allow for succession planning. Participants will leave this session with a toolkit for how to promote leadership development throughout the academic affairs team.
