As we move through the COVID-19 era, higher education will continue its efforts to redefine itself to meet the demands of students, family, and our communities. The next academic year will see traditional funding models change, an increase in technologies impact on community engagement, and health and safety driving services and facilities. Student Affairs leaders will have to increase their learning curve, balancing multiple expectations from varied constituencies with limited diminishing resources. We are on the front lines of a changing world and educational marketplace, and now more than ever our ability to provide innovative services, programs, and facilities to our communities will shape and define our field as well as higher education’s future in our country. In this interactive live briefing, higher education leaders from both the finance and student affairs areas will discuss their expectations and strategies for resource management over the next fiscal year. With an emphasis on the unknown, each panelist will discuss the steps they are taking to proactively plan, while considering the best- and worst-case scenarios. Join our panelists representing a variety of institutional types for this important discussion.
