2014 CAO and CBO Collaborations
August 4-5, 2014
Willard InterContinental Hotel
OverviewAt no time has the relationship between the chief academic officer (CAO) and the chief business officer (CBO) mattered more to the effective leadership of colleges and universities. Together, these individuals must develop a clear strategy and be effective at its execution, seek ways to align priorities and budgets, and innovate. Each requires the other to be effective and advance the institution they serve.
To help better understand and support this important relationship, The American Council on Education (ACE) and the National Association of College and University Business Officers (NACUBO) bring together CAOs and CBOs for an annual two-day meeting to address how to build effective partnerships and to meet current economic challenges.
This action-based workshop focuses on the dynamics between CBOs and CAOs and between CAOs-CBOs and their president, helps them develop a shared action agenda, and find solutions to challenging problems they face individually and collectively.
*Please note that this program is designed for individuals from higher education institutions who report directly to the president of that institution.
This program is designed to foster the relationship between the chief academic officer (CAO) and the chief business officer (CBO) – and we encourage you to register together. Register both individuals from the same institution or organization and receive a team discount! Pay full price for one registrant and additional registrants from the same institution or organization will receive a $200 discount.

Monday, August 4
|8:00 am||Registration and Continental Breakfast|
|8:30 am||Welcome and Introductions|
|9:30 am||Working Across Cultures|
At no time in the recent history of higher education has the relationship between the CAO and the CBO mattered more. However, they often come from different backgrounds, have different experiences, and have different understandings of the levers and limits of their jobs. As a result, they find themselves face to face trying to bridge different cultures. This session frames these challenges.
|11:00 am||Student Success and the Roles of CAOs and CBOs|
The imperative for focusing institutional activity on student success is examined. Insights about the critical roles CAOs and CBOs can and should play in student success are discussed, and methods for collaborating on initiatives are shared.
|1:30 pm||An Engaged CAO and CBO on How They Collaboratively Moved the Needle in Student Retention and Graduation|
Colleges and universities are holistically and aggressively scrutinizing administrative infrastructure to improve student success. For such an effort to be successful, however, everything on a college campus must be open to scrutiny and everyone willing to change. This presents a huge leadership challenge: clearly outlining standards, communicating goals, allaying fears, and maintaining support at all levels, while always keeping eyes on what can be accomplished. This session engages participants in a discussion of these activities and practices for achieving success.
|3:30 pm||How the Other Half Lives|
In separate groups, CAOs and CBOs explore their perceptions of each other as well as the perceptions that others have of them. Groups visit the opposing room to see perceptions others have of their role and discuss implications.

|8:00 am||Continental Breakfast|
|8:30 am||Working Together Effectively Across the Campus|
The ability of the CBO and the CAO to work effectively together and e effective leaders individually is strongly tied to their relationships with the president and how they work well together (or do not work well together). This session will focus on lessons and insights related to “managing your boss”.
|10:30 am||Elevating Institutional Success through High-Quality Programs|
With budgets tight at most institutions, and demands for accountability rising, more and more institutions are thinking about academic program review. But conducting reviews is easier said than done. Who decides the criteria to be used? How is success judged? How can reviews be done in ways that have credibility? And how can reviews be seen as a tool to help a campus strategically connect resources and mission, not just as a way to pick programs to eliminate?
|1:00 pm||Using Data to Improve Institutional Practices and Policies for Student Success|
Institutional leaders increasingly are using data to inform campus decisions about policies and practices that impact student success. How can leaders use data to target the right interventions for the right students in the right amounts? This session will question the value of mandatory programs and look at myths like the value of liberal withdrawal policies. What institutions do greatly impacts what students do – this session encourages leaders to take ownership of their student success outcomes and adopt practices that help them to reach their goals.
|3:30 pm||Wrap Up|
|3:45 pm||Program Adjourns|
