Community Safety and Policing Across the University of California: Planning and Implementing
The University of California, a system of 10 campuses and five medical centers, collaboratively developed, and is currently implementing, a multi-year systemwide plan that reexamines campus policing and law enforcement. The UC Community Safety Plan strives to balance the obligations and risks of both protecting and serving its communities. This session will examine the approaches taken to bring together a diverse working team of experts and stakeholders, methods used to engage with communities, and the processes used to develop a comprehensive public safety plan. The presenters will also cover how the plan was implemented, including the challenges of re imagining public safety, particularly policing and the integration of mental health service response.

The Canary in the Coalmine: Consolidation or Closure?
The COVID-19 pandemic triggered conversations around closing three of the five Vermont State College System campuses. With a proposal before the board to shutter campuses, statewide outrage forced the state to reconcile with years of dwindling state appropriation and declining enrollment. In response, the legislature and governor called for a Select Committee on the Future of Public Higher Education to craft a path forward. This panel discussion will describe the work of the Select Committee and demonstrate how the combined forces of government, system leadership, and the system's board can be effective partners in transformational change.

Join us for a fireside chat with two chief diversity officers as they discuss how they have collaborated with leaders and business areas to prioritize and elevate DEI across campus.

In this session, experts will share projections of future high school graduates—which predict a marked decline in numbers of graduates as well as an increasingly diverse population.

Serving All Students 16-65+: How Business Officers Can Help Respond to Learner Mindsets
With the declining numbers of traditional students and the increasing need for learning/credentialing over a lifetime, how can institutions better serve the changing needs of existing students while also pivoting to address the needs of new target students? This session will review a recent Accenture survey of 6500+ learners from age 16-65+, identifying six key learner segments and how to best meet their needs. A panel of higher education leaders will discuss how their institutions are responding to these changing needs, what technology modernization is required to support these responses, and how they are addressing the growing pool of lifelong learners.
