As the education landscape continues to shift, higher education institutions must adapt their projections and reforecast when needed.
During this partner webcast presented by Prophix Software, Nathan D. Grawe, author of Demographics and the Demand for Higher Education (2018) and The Agile College (2021), will review recent demographic trends and their implications for higher education. Drawing on interviews with higher education leaders, he will share some strategies proactive institutions are using to address demographic challenges, including initiatives in recruitment, retention, academic programming, and consortial collaboration. He will also discuss the evolving pressures created by the COVID-19 pandemic. 
You’ll also see a demonstration of Prophix’s Corporate Performance Management software and how it can facilitate multi-year planning, giving you the ability to quickly model plans for enrollment and attrition shifts.
