Webinar One - The Business of Higher Education: Sustainability
January 22, 2018 from 2 - 3 p.m.
With fewer potential traditional college bound students, the “business” of Higher Education is dealing with many dynamic challenges - governance, enrollment, cost, technology and financial health to name a few. Developing a clear sense of the issues and the impact on your institution will be critical in order to navigate the changing market. 

Schneider Downs and Bond will provide a thought provoking discussion of the following topics:

  • Sustainability - financial goals, health, and objectives
  • Market - changing demographics, preparedness, and success rates
  • Market strategies - students, touch points, frequency, and educational offerings
  • Board of Trustees - role, responsibility, and sense for economic issues
  • Survivability - critical challenges that should be understood in developing a strategy to sustainability
