About the Institute

​Pre-Institute Resources


College and university leaders today face significant new challenges in enrollment, finances, and accountability. They continue to work to improve access, students’ success, and public perception and to create new programs that attract students while supporting the core institutional mission. The theme of CIC’s 2018 Institute—“Academics, Allocations, and Analytics: Collaborating for a Sustainable Future”—provides a framework for action on these pressing issues and for candid sharing of both successes and challenges.

Chief academic, financial, and enrollment management officers all work directly or indirectly for and with the same students, while focused on distinct elements of their students’ performance and persistence. In today’s higher education environment, all three chief officers must intentionally collaborate as they lead teams of colleagues who work to attract and retain a robust student population—and to assure that the institution remains financially strong and provides a high-quality education. The Institute agenda will engage campus leaders with ideas and tools they can use to advance the distinctive missions of their institutions. Sessions will provide advice and concrete solutions on such topics as making the most of limited resources, recruiting the “right-sized” class, providing and marketing high-impact experiences for all students, supporting diversity and inclusion on campus, and securing an institution’s financial viability.

The Institute also will offer participants opportunities to learn about new and effective approaches to student mentoring and retention; student mental health issues; and vocational guidance. Several concurrent sessions will offer practical advice on the effective use of data in program development and evaluation and other areas of campus administration and teaching. Sessions on higher education legal issues will provide fresh perspectives on hiring, evaluation, and Title IX.

The 2018 Institute for Chief Academic Officers, with Chief Financial and Chief Enrollment Management Officers, will help participants develop the shared vision, collaborative spirit, and effective partnerships that move institutions toward successful innovation. Above all, the Institute will provide the opportunity for these three chief officers to share—with candor—ideas, practical solutions, and effective practices with colleagues from across the country and abroad.

In cooperation with the National Association of College and University Business Officers (NACUBO) and the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (AACRAO)

Who Should Participate?

CIC invites chief academic, chief financial, and chief enrollment management officers of all independent colleges and universities to participate. Chief financial and chief enrollment management officers are encouraged to join chief academic officers at the Institute to strengthen their work on issues that matter to all senior leaders. Teams of CAOs, CFOs, and CEMOs will lead many of the concurrent sessions.

Chief academic officers also are encouraged to invite senior members of their academic teams—for example, associate and assistant vice presidents/provosts and academic deans—to participate with them in the Institute to enhance collaboration on issues that fall solely within academic affairs.

A chief academic officer may hold the title of provost, vice president for academic affairs, or dean of the college, among others. Chief financial officers may have such titles as vice president for finance, vice president for business affairs, or chief business officer. Chief enrollment management officers hold a wide variety of titles, including vice president for enrollment management, vice president for enrollment services, or dean of admissions, among others.

To support team development, CIC offers a discounted registration fee for additional administrators from the same institution.

The John N. Gardner Institute for Excellence in Undergraduate Education has partnered with CIC member institutions to create the Small Enrollment Institution Retention Consortium, a community of practice to share evidence-based retention and completion lessons. The panel will describe recent research on retention, persistence, and completion, including the underlying cost-benefit and social justice/equity arguments. Panelists will outline the two-year Retention Performance Management process, which engages all campus stakeholders in the collection and analysis of a decade’s worth of evidence, and the development of a cross-institutional plan to improve students’ success. The presenters will discuss the impact of the process and the creation of a community of practice at the participating institutions, along with guidance on how to apply this process at other campuses.<br><blockquote><strong><em>Debora L.

What are the most effective Title IX educational initiatives? Which aspects of training to prevent sexual harassment incidents are effective? What kinds of investigations meet compliance requirements? An experienced higher education attorney will provide practical advice on compliance and lead a discussion on effective responses to specific campus challenges as the regulatory environment changes.<br><blockquote><strong><em>Natasha J.

Concurrent SessionsConcurrent Sessions34Concurrent Session<div><em>Sponsored by GreenFig</em></div><div><br></div><div><h3>Building an Institutional Capacity for Change: Lessons from the Field</h3>Change at higher education institutions sometimes proceeds slowly, but what if faster progress is required? Three chief academic officers will present case studies on the processes they and their teams used to prepare the campus for change—and then to plan and implement new initiatives and discontinue activities that were yielding diminishing returns. Participants in the session will have an opportunity to discuss needed changes at their own institutions and how they might accelerate the process.<br><blockquote><strong><em>William C. Deeds</em></strong>, Provost, Morningside College <br><strong><em>Joseph M. Roidt</em></strong>, Provost, Dakota Wesleyan University <br><strong><em>Anne A. Skleder</em></strong>, Senior Vice President and Provost, Wilkes University<br>Chair: <strong><em>Monique Guillory</em></strong>, Vice President for Academic Affairs, College of Saint Elizabeth<br></blockquote><br></div><div><h3>Faculty Development Models</h3>Gordon College and George Fox University have implemented new personalized faculty development programs that include one-on-one peer mentoring. The Gordon model focuses on the first eight years of a faculty member’s career and calls for an intentional pathway to strengthen pedagogical skills, build a research program, and develop an institution-wide perspective and leadership ability. The shorter timeframe of the George Fox approach includes intensive orientation—almost a boot camp—for new faculty members, followed by released time, ongoing mentoring, a plan for professional growth that is supported and monitored, and opportunities to share information and techniques. The presenters will describe these two faculty development models and invite comparison with approaches at other institutions.<br><blockquote><strong><em>Janel Curry</em></strong>, Provost, Gordon College<br><strong><em>Linda Samek</em></strong>, Provost, George Fox University<br>Chair: <strong><em>Dean A. Pribbenow</em></strong>, Vice President for Academic Affairs and Academic Dean, Edgewood College<br></blockquote><br></div><div><h3>Faculty Visas Demystified</h3>Many provosts and chief financial officers stumble, at least the first time, through the intimidating process of hiring a non-U.S. citizen. An experienced immigration attorney and a veteran provost will address the nuts and bolts of faculty visas and offer guidelines, pointers, and advice to help navigate the process and make the desired hire without violating the law or breaking the bank. <br><blockquote><strong><em>Helen L. Konrad</em></strong>, Director, Immigration Practice Group, McCandlish Holton, PC<br><strong><em>Leanne M. Neilson</em></strong>, Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs, California Lutheran University<br>Chair: <strong><em>Douglas Palmer</em></strong>, Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs, Walsh University<br></blockquote><br></div><div><h3>Why Does the Phrase “Liberal Arts” Reduce the Appeal of Independent Colleges?</h3>Last year, Art & Science Group’s “studentPOLL” research indicated that the words “liberal arts,” when added to the description of the distinguishing characteristics of a college, actually reduced the college’s appeal—even among students whose first choice was a CIC member institution. The initial study did not explain why this was so. Now, Art & Science Group has conducted another “studentPOLL” research project that sought to answer that critical question. This session will present the results of the new project, with commentary by a CIC president and a CAO emphasizing the implications for CIC member institutions.<br><blockquote><strong><em>Elizabeth Davis</em></strong>, President, Furman University<br><strong><em>J. Craig Goebel</em></strong>, Principal, Art & Science Group<br><strong><em>George Shields</em></strong>, Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost, Furman University<br>Chair: <strong><em>Tresmaine R.

Chief officers who have experience with unionization and those interested in the topic are invited to discuss the impact of unionization on campus morale, the teaching and learning environment, and external community relations.<br><blockquote><strong><em>Julia Jasken</em></strong>, Provost, McDaniel College</blockquote></div><div><br><h3>Best Practices for Inclusive Facilities Planning</h3>Muhlenberg College’s chief academic officer will facilitate a discussion of best practices to engage campus constituencies, and in particular faculty members, in facilities planning that aligns with academic priorities and supports institutional innovation and change. <br><blockquote><strong><em>Kathleen Harring</em></strong>, Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs, Muhlenberg College<br></blockquote></div><div><h3><br>Centers for Excellence in Teaching and Learning: Making Them Effective</h3>How have CIC institutions structured and funded centers for teaching and learning? What types of programs do the centers offer? What have been the benefits and return on investment? Chief officers from campuses that have active centers are invited to share information with Transylvania University’s CAO and other participants whose campuses have centers under consideration.   <br><blockquote><strong><em>Laura Bryan</em></strong>, Vice President for Academic Affairs and Dean of the University, Transylvania University<br></blockquote></div><div><h3><br>Collaborative Risk Management of High-Impact Practices</h3>This discussion will focus on how to manage the risks inherent in activities and initiatives that are considered to be high-impact practices (HIPs), such as travel courses, community engagement projects, and other forms of experiential learning. What protocols are in place at CIC institutions to ensure students’ safety? How do chief officers collaborate and, if necessary, resolve differing opinions on risk assessment and management of HIPs? Participants are invited to share their experiences and advice. <br><blockquote><strong><em>Tracy Stewart</em></strong>, Vice President for Academic Affairs, Viterbo University<br></blockquote></div><div><h3><br>Dashboards for Decision Making</h3>How do CIC institutions use dashboards for decision making on their campuses? Join the chief academic officer from Concordia College New York in a discussion of effective dashboard models and how they can foster strategic decision making across the academic, student life, enrollment, and financial areas of the college or university.  <br><blockquote><strong><em>Sherry Fraser</em></strong>, Vice President for Academic Affairs, Concordia College New York<br></blockquote></div><div><h3><br>Early Results from Schreiner University’s First-Year Campus Initiative</h3>Schreiner University’s implementation of first-year campuses has yielded positive early results. Schreiner’s CEMO and CFO will discuss how this model provides an alternative entry path for an at-risk population of students as well as how it has affected student persistence and college finances. Participants are invited to ask questions and to give feedback. <br><blockquote><strong><em>Bill Muse</em></strong>, Vice President for Administration and Finance, Schreiner University<br><strong><em>Mark Tuschak</em></strong>, Vice President for Student Recruitment, External Relations, and Marketing, Schreiner University<br></blockquote></div><div><h3><br>First-Year Retention Strategies That Yield Positive Results</h3>Caldwell University has implemented <em>Winter Refresh</em>, a first-year retention strategy that allows students who have failed one core class in the fall semester to return for three weeks prior to spring semester to retake the course without paying additional tuition. Participants will discuss Caldwell’s initiative and share successful approaches to first-year retention from their own campuses.<br><blockquote><strong><em>Barbara Chesler</em></strong>, Vice President for Academic Affairs, Caldwell University<br></blockquote></div><div><h3><br>General Education Review—Again </h3>General education review can be an exercise in nibbling around the edges of an existing program, an enrollment turf battle, or an opportunity to strengthen the link between an institution’s mission and its cognitive and behavioral objectives for graduates. The facilitator will provide insights from recent and ongoing campus reviews. Participants are invited to exchange information about their successful strategies and to share advice about challenges encountered in general education review on their campuses.<br><blockquote><strong><em>Michael J.

Workshop: "Strategic Enrollment Management 101 for Chief Academic and Chief Financial Officers"Workshop: "Strategic Enrollment Management 101 for Chief Academic and Chief Financial Officers"29WorkshopThe financial health of an institution depends on its ability to meet enrollment and net revenue targets.

Workshop: "Working with the Board"Workshop: "Working with the Board"29WorkshopVice presidents and the trustees of their institutions have nuanced relationships, which also are influenced by the relationship dynamics between the president and the board. As institutions increasingly rely on trustees for more than broad policy guidance and philanthropy, it has become crucial for vice presidents to understand the dynamics of governance and how—and when—to engage with trustees on committees, in board meetings, and between meetings, all without compromising the president’s authority. This interactive workshop will help vice presidents explore the intersection of board culture, institutional structure, and work and will provide concrete strategies for how vice presidents can get the most help and appropriate guidance from trustees.<br><blockquote><strong><em>Peter D.

Meeting students on their terms with well-being initiatives through scalable and personalized digital interventions has proven to be effective. A clinical psychologist will provide a case study of YOU@CSU, a digital platform that increases health literacy, encourages students to seek help, and connects them to campus resources. Results from implementation include promotion of well-being on campus, utilization of resources, and the opportunity to use data analysis to inform campus health policies and student success initiatives. Presenters also will highlight a new collaborative program aimed at tackling loneliness in the college population. They will share insights that have emerged from in-depth interviews with students experiencing loneliness and show how this qualitative data can be combined with academic research to find effective solutions to increase the sense of belonging and connectedness. <br> <blockquote> <strong> <em>Sarah Cardwell</em></strong>, Senior Associate Dean of Student Life, Connecticut College<br><strong><em>Nathaan Demers</em></strong>, Vice President and Director of Clinical Programs, Grit Digital Health<br><strong><em>Caroline FitzGerald</em></strong>, Project Lead, Hopelab<br>Chair: <strong> <em>Volker R.

Pierce</em></strong>, Provost, Young Harris College</blockquote></div><div> <br> <h3>Vocation, Career Services, and the Academic Program</h3>A student’s search for a fulfilling professional life may begin in a career services office, in discussions with parents, faculty members, mentors, and fellow students, or through a work or volunteer experience. Many colleges foster conversations with students to help them discern their vocation, which then motivates them to choose an academic path to a desired work life. How have colleges used the language of vocation and calling as a way to connect career services to academic programs? CAOs of institutions that are part of CIC’s Network for Vocation in Undergraduate Education will share what is happening on their campuses and invite discussion from others.<br> <blockquote><strong><em>Carey H.

Through a partnership between American Councils for International Education (American Councils), and Allegheny College’s Global Health Studies program, students are able to study abroad in Moldova. Representatives of Allegheny College and American Councils will explain how the program was developed, discuss logistical and curricular challenges, successes, and future plans; and provide ideas and advice for other CIC member institutions to think about ways they might develop similar internationalization programs.<br><blockquote><strong><em>Ron Cole</em></strong>, Provost and Dean of the College, Allegheny College<br><strong><em>Steven Farrelly-Jackson</em></strong>, Associate Professor, Philosophy and Global Health Studies, Allegheny College <br><strong><em>Graham Hettlinger</em></strong>, Director, Higher Education Programs, American Councils for International Education<br><strong><em>Caryl E.

How can you and your institution be more successful in your efforts to be selected to participate? CIC staff members who participate in review processes will discuss key factors that are considered and will identify some of the common pitfalls.<br><blockquote><strong><em>David G.

Muyskens</em></strong>, Vice President for Academic Affairs and Dean of the College, Hiram College <br> </blockquote></div><div><h3><br>Master Planning for the Campus</h3>Master planning, whether for facilities, sustainability, utilities, or other aspects of campus life, is an important collaborative exercise for a college or university. Two sets of senior administrators, one from Goucher College and one from Sewanee: The University of the South, will discuss how they led their institutions through master planning, including challenges overcome, lessons learned, and accomplishments celebrated. <br><blockquote><strong><em>Nancy Berner</em></strong>, Provost, Sewanee: The University of the South <br><strong><em>Lynne P.

Boyd</em></strong>, Provost, Berry College<br></blockquote></div><div><h3><br>St. Louis: The Most Southern Northern City? Or the Most Northern Southern City?</h3>St. Louis has a rich history shaped by immigration, commerce, industry, and by a legacy of racial tension and segregation. Two local historians, Mark Abbott and Kristine Smith, will present highlights of St. Louis’s history, from its founding in 1764, through its days as an antebellum steamboat hub, to its rise as an industrial power. The presentation will outline the city’s slide from prominence through the 20th century, including how St. Louis’s dual heritage as both a northern and southern city has informed and shaped relationships and divisions. Abbott and Smith will examine post-Ferguson conditions in St. Louis and note how contemporary successes continue to be undermined by the region’s inability to acknowledge the internal divisions caused by the history of segregation.<br><blockquote><strong><em>Mark K. Abbott</em></strong>, Professor Emeritus of History and Urban Affairs, Harris-Stowe State University, and CAO Spouse, Lindenwood University<br><strong><em>Kristine Runberg Smith</em></strong>, Professor of History, Lindenwood University<br>Chair: <strong><em>Marilyn Abbott</em></strong>, Provost and Vice President for Academic and Student Affairs, Lindenwood University</blockquote></div><div><br><h3>The Changing Role of the Chief Academic Officer:  Perceptions, Challenges, and Paths Forward</h3>As independent colleges and universities evolve to meet the demands of a changing higher education landscape, the role of the CAO also must change. The traditional sole focus on academic programs is now often part of a broader professional portfolio that includes budgetary oversight as well as student recruitment, fundraising, institutional planning, and assessment responsibilities. This session presents results from a recent survey of current CAOs about the impact of this expanded role on their lives and their readiness to meet these new challenges. A group discussion on strategies to prepare current and future CAOs for the broadening portfolio of the position will round out the session. <br><blockquote><strong><em>Jeff Gingerich</em></strong>, Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs, University of Scranton<br><strong><em>Michael W.

The mission of the Press is to excel in the selection, preparation, and innovative dissemination of works that advance teaching and research and enlighten a diverse audience of readers.</div><div><br>With critically acclaimed titles in history, science, higher education, health and wellness, humanities, classics, and public health, the Books Division publishes 150 new books each year and maintains a backlist in excess of 3,000 titles. The JHUP also is home to the largest journal publication program of any U.S.-based university press, with 85 journals in the arts and humanities, technology and medicine, higher education, history, political science, and library science; and to Project MUSE, a collaboration with the Sheridan Libraries at JHU, which provides online access to more than 260,000 journal articles and 410,000 book chapters from 120 scholarly publishers for millions of students, scholars, and other readers around the world.</div><div><br></div><div>In recent years, the meteoric increase in the number of books published in the field of higher education at JHUP has been a boon to independent colleges.

The U.S. birth rate has plummeted since the Great Recession, resulting in an even greater decline in the number of new high school graduates beginning in 2026. The decline will not affect all institutional types equally, however. In his new book, <em>Demographics and the Demand for Higher Education</em> (2018), Nathan D. Grawe examines how recent demographic shifts are likely to affect demand for higher education and explores how colleges and policy makers could respond to meet institutional and national goals. Grawe has developed the Higher Education Demand Index (HEDI), which forecasts college demand by institutional type and rank. How are small and mid-sized independent colleges likely to be affected by the approaching demographic changes? What strategies can they implement now to secure maximum student enrollment in the future?<br></div><div><br></div><div>Chair: <strong><em>Marcheta Evans</em></strong>, Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs, Our Lady of the Lake University<br></div>

Representatives of three institutions that have recently created new digital learning opportunities will discuss how they began the planning process, what they learned along the way, and the impact of the new learning environments on their campuses. An education technology expert will describe how the examples are related to Apple’s broader view of the role of digital devices and platforms in higher education.<br> <blockquote> <strong><em>Paul D’Ascol</em></strong>i, Market Segment Executive, Higher Education, Apple<br><strong><em>Anne C.

An experienced higher-education attorney will discuss best search practices that will help campus leaders draft a position description, appoint and train the search committee, build the pool of applicants, interview candidates, check references, and complete the search without exposing the institution and themselves to legal risks.<br> <blockquote> <strong><em>Kathleen A. Rinehart</em></strong>, President, Cardinal Stritch University<br>Chair: <strong> <em>Donald Tucker</em></strong>, Provost, North Central University<br></blockquote> <br> </div><div><h3>Improving Graduation Rates</h3>Students who fail to graduate with their entering class peers do so for a variety of reasons. Often, students who go off-track were unable to enroll in courses when they needed to take them. A new initiative, partially funded through a grant from the CIC State Councils National Ventures Fund, has paired CIC member institutions with the College Consortium to offer a wide-ranging schedule of online courses in which students from participating institutions can enroll. Students, working with their academic advisors, select from approved courses as needed to satisfy the remaining graduation requirements. Revenues are shared between the two institutions. Frequently, students are able to include these courses in their regular load and make use of institutional financial aid. Preliminary results show increases in graduation rates at low institutional cost. CAOs from participating institutions and the College Consortium will offer insights into outcomes and experiences and discuss next steps.<br> <blockquote> <strong><em>Diana Comuzzie</em></strong>, Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs, Schreiner University<br><strong><em>Ann Fulop</em></strong>, Provost and Dean of the College, Eureka College<br><strong><em>Allen Henderson</em></strong>, Provost and Senior Vice President, Texas Wesleyan University<br><strong><em>Robert Manzer</em></strong>, Co-Founder and Chief Academic Officer, College Consortium<br>Chair: <strong> <em>Melinda Stephens</em></strong>, Vice President for Academic Affairs, Geneva College</blockquote></div>

In her most recent book, <em>Supernormal: The Untold Story of Adversity and Resilience</em> (2017), Meg Jay explores the secret, inner world of those who are resilient. Contrary to the notion that resilient youths bounce back from hard times, or that success is a matter of “grit,” the inner life of these students is actually much more complicated and courageous as they often have to wage fierce battles well into adulthood.

He has participated as a presenter at nearly every CIC Institute for CAOs since 2004 and as a mentor to many of his colleagues as they began their tenure as CAOs. Since 2013, Kolander also has shared his knowledge and advice as a presenter for the CIC Workshops for Department and Division Chairs on developing leadership potential in oneself and others, advising new chairs to “never forget the importance of mission and vision,” and that “leading from the middle is not a curse, it’s an opportunity to have tremendous impact on your institutional culture.” In addition to his participation in many other CIC programs, Kolander served on the CIC CAO Task Force from 2013 to 2015. He also is president of the Edgar H. and Meta A. Hoenecke Vulnerable Children’s Foundation, Inc., which serves over 500 students in Lusaka, Zambia.</div><div><br>Kolander has been CAO at Wisconsin Lutheran College since 2004.

Many point to the “disruptions” in other industries—telecommunications, publishing, and health care—as examples of the radical changes already in play and still to come for higher education. How can senior leaders of CIC member institutions guide their colleges and universities through the current economic climate in ways that simultaneously encourage prudent stewardship of resources, creative problem solving, respect for mission, and the best possible outcomes for students? Roger W. Ferguson, Jr. has led TIAA through a period of rapid change in the financial services industry. He will draw out lessons he has learned from that experience that are applicable to the work of CAOs, CFOs, and CEMOs.</div>
