Follow-up session for the Academic Programming for Financial Sustainability workshop:

Case Studies for Undergraduate Academic Programming for Financial Sustainability

Academic programming for financial sustainability often involves self-reflection on the part of institutions on their mission, their value, and to determine what is important, what must be maintained, and what needs to be revised or removed. In other words, it often involves prioritization at some level. The institutions represented on this panel have gone through this process; some are in the recovery stage, while others are evaluating the impact of their process. The panel presents an opportunity to see models of how academic programming can be successfully implemented through collaboration between various relevant campus constituencies.

Follow-up session for The Intersection of Government and Politics on Your Campus workshop:

Supporting Student Career Readiness Through High Impact Practices

Institutions that focus on liberal arts programming often engage in high impact and hands-on experiences that put their students at an advantage for work post-graduation and prepares them well for entering graduate programs. Some of these practices include undergraduate research, integrative learning, programs that connect directly to career preparation, and importantly, effective advising, which ensures that students are taking the right classes to prepare them for their chosen careers. This panel will showcase how two institutions have successfully navigated these processes.

Follow-up session for the Using Data for Institutional Effectiveness workshop:

Making the Case with Data

The 2022 CIC Member Engagement Survey revealed that presidents and provosts were very interested in having access to and using data to make strategic decisions. Over a third of the indicators in the CIC Key Indicators Tool (KIT) relate to faculty and instructional resources. Understanding these key indicators and their relationships to each other can help CAOs and CFOs maximize the benefit of current expenditures on instruction and provide guidance as to whether the current level of support is adequate to achieve institutional mission. This session will have three parts: an explanation of the relevant key indicators; the use of a case study to show how the indicators can be used to frame discussions of instructional support; and a discussion of the situation on your own campus. Parts two and three will involve small group discussions in a workshop format. Questions and discussion are welcome about how institutions can use this and other data to make the case for institutional needs, priorities, and mission.
