CBO Laura Hubbard is Turning Functional Experts into Institutional Leaders

Laura Hubbard serves as Vice President for Finance and Administration at the University at Buffalo. This week on the show, Hubbard joins Megan Strand for a conversation on the issues most impacting the way colleges and universities do business over the next decade.

For Hubbard, that conversation starts with access. “I feel like we’re at a crossroads,” she says, “there are increasing challenges in getting a college education and increasing disparities about who gets access… what it costs, who’s advantaged and disadvantaged in getting their foot in the door.”

Business officers need to be scrappy, she says. Building the next generation of leaders is rooted in building functional expertise, and turning those experts into leaders. Listen in to hear how Hubbard is preparing her institution for a future of opportunity and uncertainty.
