The webinar has been postponed.
We have decided to postpone the webinar, brought to you by AGB partner Farrell Day, and host it during a less hectic time to ensure all interested members can participate. As soon as we select a new date, we will contact you.
In the meantime, please feel free to visit the new section of the Knowledge Center for resources to help governing boards navigate this unprecedented situation.
In today’s environment, the financial sustainability of institutions of higher learning increasingly requires the rethinking of college and university business models, including a fresh look at resourcing student learning and the core academic enterprise. There are few—if any—issues on a college or university campus that can cause more divisiveness and controversy among stakeholders than those that involve finances and resource allocation. Traditionally the purview of the governing boards and presidents alone, the thoughtful inclusion of campus constituencies can enhance management decision making and broaden opportunities for financial growth and stability. At the same time, many of the decisions that have to be made regarding finances and resources require an urgency for which the traditional practice of shared governance may not be well-suited.
Join us for a conversation about how governing boards can balance their fiduciary duties, including confidentiality of sensitive information, while simultaneously addressing the need for urgency while embracing new, inclusive models of shared governance as a vehicle for change.
