Georgia College and State University CBO Susan Allen Faces Demographic Changes with a Team of Creative Leaders

Susan Allen serves as Vice President for Finance and Administration for Georgia College and State University in Milledgeville, Georgia. This week on the show, Allen joins Megan Strand for a conversation on the universe of factors impacting higher education’s immediate future.

"The biggest factor that we’ll see is that high school graduation pipeline that we’re already seeing in other states," she says. "I know for Georgia, we’re expecting a 13% decline starting from 2025 and probably peaking in 2031 and that is significant; that’s the size of a small or mid-sized institution. The demographic shifts are going to change the face of higher education and what we do."

Join us for a conversation with Susan Allen as she takes us through her experience with the changes influencing her decisions from demographics to technology, curriculum delivery, infrastructure changes, and creative leadership through revenue stream challenges and opportunities ahead.
