Attend NACUBO's Annual Meeting on Your Own Time

July 28, 2015

You and your entire staff can gain access to 20 recorded sessions from the NACUBO 2015 Annual Meeting from your home, office, or mobile device. Once one person on your campus registers at the full price, everyone else on your campus can register to attend virtually for free. To participate, each additional registrant must complete the online registration process before having access to the full 20 hours of educational programming.

If you attended the conference in Nashville, July 18-21, you will automatically have access to the virtual programming and do not need to register for the virtual event. To take advantage of the group pricing, however, someone else from your institution will need to purchase the virtual event separately to give campus colleagues free access.

The virtual programming will be available as of 9 a.m. Eastern on Wednesday, Aug. 5, 2015, and will remain available through Feb. 1, 2016. Site registration for the virtual event is $250 for members and $550 for nonmembers. Click here to register.

The selected educational sessions cover a variety of issues including strategic financial planning, risk management, sexual misconduct, legislative updates, and more. Here are descriptions of some of the sessions you and your colleagues can access.

  • Lessons from Health-care Transformations. Speaker: Emme Deland, NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital. The health-care industry has faced many of the challenges higher education leaders are grappling with today: rising costs, waning public support, new and potentially disruptive entrants, and serious questions about quality and value. The speaker, who is responsible for developing the strategic road map for one of the nation's largest and most comprehensive hospitals, will explore the similarities between the two sectors and point to lessons learned in health care that can positively shape institutional strategy and practice in higher education.

  • Mental Health Issues: Reducing Risk for Students and Campuses. Speaker: Kevin Kruger, NASPA, Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education. Kevin Kruger draws on more than 30 years of experience in higher education, serving NASPA as associate executive director since 1994 and becoming the association's first executive-level president in March 2012. Kruger represents NASPA in national forums such as the Washington Higher Education Secretariat, which includes the leaders of approximately 50 higher education associations. He has published and presented nationally on leadership development, using technology in student affairs administration, international education, change management, and trends in higher education.

  • Establishing a Culture of Reporting to Reduce Risk. Speakers: Janice Abraham, United Educators Insurance; Pamela Bernard, Duke University; Michael Mulhare, Virginia Tech University. Without a culture of reporting in place, an educational institution often has students, faculty, and staff who do not understand its policies or even know to whom to report. In addition to emphasizing the responsibility for reporting, colleges and universities must develop the capacity to proactively respond to incidents and meet ever-increasing compliance burdens. Hear about the risk management aspects of reporting, and discuss how to change perceptions so campus leaders better understand the benefits of increased reporting and the value that a reporting culture brings to an institution.

  • Sexual Misconduct on Campus: Legal Obligations and Compliance. Speakers: Audrey Anderson, Vanderbilt University; Stephanie Gold, Hogan Lovells; Cassandra Walsh, Baker Tilly. A White House task force has issued recommendations and tools to prevent and respond to campus sexual misconduct, and the U.S. Department of Education is actively enforcing Title IX, the landmark civil rights law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of gender in federally assisted educational programs and activities. In addition, the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2013 has imposed a range of new campus safety requirements pertinent to sexual misconduct. Against this backdrop, speakers will explore conflicting laws and guidance, review federal and state legal requirements, and outline practical steps to comply with myriad requirements.

  • Tune Up Your Talent. Speaker:  Tina Woodard, University System of Georgia. The 30 public colleges and universities within the University System of Georgia encompass more than 312,000 students, 45,000 faculty and staff, and a $7.5 billion budget. Facing the impending retirements of a significant number of chief business officers—and a scarcity of leaders prepared to assume these critical positions—the system created a strategic talent management plan to fill leadership gaps from within, thereby engaging and retaining top talent. The speaker will address how lessons learned by the University System of Georgia can benefit your institution. (See also the Business Officer article from this presenter that appeared in the March 2015 issue of the magazine.)

  • Two Approaches to Shared Services. Speakers: Catherine Lilly, University of Michigan-Ann Arbor; Holly Rounds, The University of Memphis. Shared services can help universities remain competitive while addressing the increased complexity of administrative work within their departments. Engage in a discussion of the challenges associated with implementing a shared services model, including how to manage the change successfully given the multiple stakeholders involved. Speakers will compare and contrast two different strategies and experiences of implementing shared services at their institutions, and share lessons learned.

  • Financing Higher Education: Is Innovation the Key? Speaker: Stuart Butler, The Brookings Institution. Highlighting his paper, "Tottering Ivory Towers," Butler will provide insight from his work on a wide range of issues, including the future of higher education, economic mobility, budget process reform, and federal entitlement reform.

  • Journey to the Modern Campus. Speaker: Cole Clark, Oracle Corporation. Institutions must transform to fuel growth and innovation across campus. During this panel session, campus leaders will discuss how they transformed their institutions by embracing new ways of thinking, new processes, and new cloud technologies. They'll share strategies for stewarding high-performance cultures, simplifying and standardizing systems and processes to improve operational efficiency, and gaining insight to drive more strategic decision making.

  • CBO Speaks. Speakers: Gregg Goldman, University of Arizona; Brian Gutierrez, Texas Christian University; Susan Perkins, Middlesex County College; Betty Roberts, College of New Rochelle. The role of the chief business officer has evolved into a challenging and exciting position represented by collaborative leaders, critical change agents, and charismatic spokespersons. What does it take to be a CBO at today's colleges and universities? What leadership challenges do they face? What keeps them going? What makes them tick, or ticks them off? Hear four thought leaders reflect on the CBO role and what's in store for the future in this fun, interactive, "TED Talks" format.

  • Making Sense of Capitol Hill. Speaker: Liz Clark, NACUBO. With a new Congress, President Obama's second term in its final years, and primaries around the corner, what is the current state of play in the nation's capital? Higher education is under intense scrutiny on Capitol Hill and within the Obama administration. Budgetary pressures continue to threaten the availability of both student aid and research funds; at the same time, the Department of Education is exploring a host of new regulations and implementing a new ratings plan. Explore today's political and economic climate and the road ahead as we move toward reauthorization of the Higher Education Act.
