Speaker(s):
Marta Drake, NACUBO
Doug Lederman, Inside Higher Ed
Jim Sirianni, American Council On Education

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.

2:00 pmStrategic Review of Academic Programs

Speaker(s):
Richard Staisloff, rpkGROUP

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.

This presentation will cover best practice emerging in higher education for academic program review, including:
 
  • Creating a change agenda that moves the institution from cutting to strategic reallocation
  • Developing scorecards
  • Understanding net revenue
  • Overcoming internal and external obstacles
  • Creating buy in from campus stakeholder groups
3:30 pmRefreshment Break

Tuesday, August 6

8:00 amContinental Breakfast
8:30 amUniversity Performance Improvement

Speaker(s):
Bill Jenkins, Huron Consulting Group
Uday Sukhatme, Pace University
Toby Winer, Pace University

Colleges and universities are holistically and aggressively scrutinizing administrative infrastructure to improve operational efficiency.  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.  
10:00 amCheckout/Break
10:30 amEngaging Intellectually: Enhancing Academic Productivity Through the Use of Disruptive Innovations: What are the Implications?

Marta Drake, NACUBO
Sharon Pierce, Howard Community College
Bob Shea, NACUBO
Jim Sirianni, American Council On Education
Uday Sukhatme, Pace University
Toby Winer, Pace University

The challenges CAOs and CBOs encounter go well beyond their relationship and dynamics. They are created by organizational, cabinet and leadership challenges (and opportunities). To provide leaders with key insights on the challenges they face, we have identified three outstanding readings on the topic of academic productivity. This session will provide focused discussions on each of the three topics identified.

  • Changing the Production Function in Higher Education (ACE report)
  • Changing the Conversation about Productivity: Strategies for Engaging Faculty and Institutional Leaders (Public Agenda report)
12:00 pmTeam TimeInstitutional teams connect with one another to discuss their learning.

Speaker(s):
Marta Drake, NACUBO
Sharon Pierce, Howard Community College
Bob Shea, NACUBO
Jim Sirianni, American Council On Education
Uday Sukhatme, Pace University
Toby Winer, Pace University

The ability of the CBO and the CAO to work effectively together and be 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.”
