Seizing the Transformative Moment: Board Responsibilities in Leading Strategic Transformation

Upcoming Webinar
December 13, 2:00–3:00 PM ET

Higher education is facing systemic challenges, with hundreds of private institutions dealing with disrupted or broken financial models. Too often, boards are waiting until it is too late to take meaningful transformative action. Strategies for ensuring prosperity, including how to leverage strategic partnerships or determine if mergers or affiliations are appropriate, must be prioritized far sooner. What are the key indicators boards must consider before acting as a collective governing body? What are the signs that should trigger action, and when is it time for an institution to transform or become “affiliation ready”?

Attend this webinar to get detailed advice on:

  • How institutions can take critical steps to protect their future, including developing proactive strategies before it is too late.
  • How boards can transform themselves as the first step forward to prosperity, including developing the knowledge needed to act decisively.
  • How boards can be supportive of the president and administration as an institution seeks to identify a transformational plan and pathway forward.
  • How to determine the advantages of smaller versus larger boards in the transformation process.
