Learning How to Explain Finances to Non-Financial People with John Brown University CBO Dr. Kim Hadley

Dr. Kim Hadley is the Vice President of Finance and Administration and Assistant Professor of Business at John Brown University in Siloam Springs, Arkansas. In this episode, Dr. Hadley joins our host Donna Schiele to talk about how her background as a professor informs everything she does, keeping up to date with the pulse of the students and the role of faith for her as a CBO.

“It’s been a refreshing place to be for my faith,” she says. The role as a CBO is the same, but there are differences for her because of the focus of the university. “Faculty and staff are expected to integrate faith into every aspect of their teaching.” She goes on to say that each individual may think differently and integrate it differently, but from a budget perspective, they still need to make room for all of it.

Join us for a conversation with Dr. Hadley as she talks about the power of collaboration between institutions, learning to make budget talk exciting for faculty meetings, and the joy in bringing a daycare center to campus.
