Over the last year and a half, most institutions have had to make difficult decisions around cutting programs and staff, delaying capital projects, and adjusting enrollments. Unfortunately, due to the severity and immediacy of some budgetary pressures, many of these cuts have been made in a reactive manner. The institutions that will not only survive but thrive in this current environment are those that are strategic in how they define themselves, position themselves in an increasingly competitive marketplace, and direct their resources to the areas that can generate the greatest value.

Join two leading experts to learn proven techniques for engaging the campus community in these discussions and ultimately prioritizing academic and administrative programs to allocate resources where they make the greatest impact.

Given the leadership support required to successfully implement program prioritization, we have designed this conference for teams of institutional executives. We strongly encourage both the chief financial officer and chief academic officer to attend the program together. Should an institution send two paid attendees, Academic Impressions will provide a complimentary registration for the institution's president or chief executive.

Successful implementation also requires significant support from the IR office so we encourage representatives from institutional research to attend as well.

Send your institution's president!

If your institution sends at least two people to this event, your president will receive a complimentary registration!

This program will be highly interactive and discussion-based. While the concepts of prioritization have been successfully used in multiple campus settings, there is no one template for successful implementation. A variety of cultural and economic factors will influence an institution's approach. As such, the program is highly focused on the application of these concepts to your specific campus context. Outcomes from the various group activities will be documented and shared out to each participant after the program so you can take back a range of ideas and solutions that might work for your campus.

This program is based in large part on Robert Dickeson's book, Prioritizing Academic Programs and Services. Included in your registration fee is a complimentary copy of the latest version of tihs resource-rich book, which can be helpful not only as a guide but to build buy-in for this effort.
