The Council of Independent Colleges (CIC)

2019 Presidents Institute

January 4-7, 2019 I Scottsdale, AZ

In recent years, the circumstances under which private colleges and universities operate have caused unusual pressures on both presidents and trustees as they seek to balance short-term needs with long-term strategic judgments. The strains on presidents and governing boards sometimes have been severe, often resulting in adverse consequences for the colleges they serve—and presidential tenures. The roots of those problems are sometimes attributed to conflicting personalities or personal styles but are more often traceable to board culture, norms, and structure—that is, misalignment with the best governance principles, policies, and practices.

The Presidents Governance Academy is unique in its exclusive focus on the perspective of the independent college president. While it respects the distinction between the president’s and the board’s authority, the Academy starts with the premise that the president must have the tools and the mandate to advance efforts, with board leaders, to develop an effective governing board.

Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U)

2019 Annual Meeting

January 23 – 26 I Atlanta, GA

The 2019 Annual Meeting will highlight the innovations of member institutions that have implemented proven practices and programs that demonstrate why higher education is essential for students’ future employability and for democratic vitality. Supported by clear evidence of the power of liberal education and bolstered by strong curricular and cocurricular models that advance student success, we must tell our own stories about the value of higher education for the students of today and tomorrow. By raising our voices, we can reclaim the narrative and communicate higher education’s relevance in the workplace and society.

Association of Catholic Colleges and Universities (ACCU)

2019 Annual Meeting

"Mission, Myth, and Money: Securing Catholic Higher Education for the Future"

February 2-4 I Washington, D.C.

Evidence shows that college graduates are more likely to be employed, be upwardly mobile, and make enormous contributions to society. Despite this, public skepticism over the value of postsecondary education persists — compelling Catholic higher education to make the case for its continued relevancy. Join us for the 2019 ACCU Annual Meeting, where we will come together to find practical ways to secure our future by challenging misconceptions, articulating an authentic narrative for Catholic higher education, and reimagining strategies to boost student learning and competencies for today’s fast-changing world.

Meet the following Collegis Education team members and join us on February 3 for a presentation by Collegis Exectuive Vice President Bob King.

Higher education continues to persevere through a period of transformation.

In this session, Tracy Chapman, PH.D., dean of the School for Professional Studies at Saint Louis University, and Bob King, executive vice president of partner strategy with Collegis Education, will share the lay of the land –  from education demand to tuition discounting trends – and how yesterday’s tactics won’t work in today’s world. This presentation will highlight how implementing a revenue-growth management strategy can grow not just enrollments, but real institutional revenue.
