The higher education environment is characterized by volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity (VUCA). Positive and successful board management in a time of VUCA involves shared governance and strong communication among not only trustees and presidents, but also faculty and staff.
Boards, board professionals, presidents, and their senior staff must confront many short- and long-term challenges while maintaining a focus on student success and outcomes and financial prosperity. Throughout these challenges, it is imperative for boards to use their time, both in formal meetings and committee work, to focus on the issues of greatest strategic importance to the institution. This requires a deep understanding of the institution’s current competitive position, future outlook, and strategic priorities.
Attend this webinar to learn more about how to maximize the board’s time in meetings and committees for the greatest strategic benefit. Panelists will discuss best practices for creating strategic board meetings, retreats, and committee structures, and how to ensure strong collaboration with the senior leadership team.
