Webinar 2: Strategic Planning and Leadership

Leading a Higher Education institution is no simple task. There are many passionate people involved and one is never short on hearing different perspectives. A key to success is to have clearly defined roles and responsibilities at all levels. The board of trustees, president, cabinet, and faculty are each major centers of influence that must understand their roles, responsibility and accountability. It is essential for leaders to correlate economic trends, changing market dynamics and empirical data to determine the impact on an institution's mission and vision.

Schneider Downs and Bond will lead a thought-provoking discussion of the following topics:

  • Leadership - faculty, president, cabinet and board of trustees - what works
  • Communication - challenges, motives and methods to improve
  • Data Access and Measurement - how, what and when
  • Best Process Considerations - strategic planning, financial and operational
