What is a discount rate? Where does most of a college’s revenue come from? What is its greatest expense? For many faculty members, the financial realities of their campus – and the sustainability of its operations -- are not often on their radar. Arguably, they should be. And for chairs, understanding the mounting financial pressures facing campuses, whether falling enrollment, decreased public funding, and constraints on tuition increases, is increasingly important.
As colleges explore different strategies to achieve a sustainable future, it’s essential for chairs to have the essential financial knowledge of how their institutions operate.
In this 75 minute session, you will learn:
- The financial fundamentals of different kinds of institutions
- How external pressures are reshaping colleges’ finances
- The most common financial strategies colleges pursue and how they affect academic departments
- Rick Staisloff, Founder and Senior Partner of rpk GROUP, a consulting firm that works with colleges and universities.
- Liz McMillen, Executive Editor, Chronicle Intelligence
You'll receive a link to the recording and the provided resources in a separate document.
Register for all six seminars with the Seminar Bundle Package and receive digital copies of The Chronicle's Trends Report and A Toolbox for Administrators.
