About the Institute

Change in higher education today is rapid and inevitable. Campus leaders are expected to adapt to seismic demographic shifts, technological innovations, and public criticism while simultaneously
protecting fundamental academic traditions and proven educational practices. The theme of CIC’s 47th CAO Institute—“Change: Continuity, Communication, and Connection”—provides a framework for discussion of ways to blend adaptation and continuity, assure institutional success, and sustain robust learning communities.

Leaders who face the imperative to adapt also need to deliver internal and external messages that convey the authentic strengths of the institution in alignment with the college’s strategy for managing change. Chief academic, advancement, and public relations officers view today’s pressures from different angles, but they share the need to align strategy and message. Especially in times of change, intentional focus on both effective communication and strong relationships is required to build support that transcends an institution’s many constituencies.

The Institute will offer participants opportunities to learn about successful strategies that have enabled college leaders to develop effective partnerships. These succeed when alumni and donors are appropriately engaged in the design and finance of complex projects and initiatives. Institute sessions also will offer practical advice on such topics as the use of data in managing advancement and will provide updates on current legal issues in hiring and Title IX compliance.

CIC’s 2019 Institute for Chief Academic Officers, with Chief Advancement and Public Relations Officers, will help participants develop the shared vision, collaborative spirit, and effective partnerships that move
institutions toward bold innovation and institutional success while staying true to themselves. Above all, the Institute will provide ample opportunity for college leaders to share—with candor—ideas, practical solutions, and proven practices with colleagues from across the country and abroad.

In cooperation with the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE)

Who Should Participate?

CIC invites chief academic and chief advancement officers and the heads of public relations offices of all independent colleges and universities to participate in this annual Institute. Chief advancement and public relations officers are encouraged to join the chief academic officers at the Institute to strengthen their collaborative work on issues that matter to all three senior officers. Teams of CAOs and CAdOs 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 their collaboration on the issues that fall solely within academic affairs.

A chief academic officer may hold the title of provost, vice president for academic affairs, dean of the faculty, or dean of the college, among others. Chief advancement officers may have such titles as vice president for advancement or vice president for development. Public relations officers hold a wide variety of titles, including vice president for communications and marketing, vice president for public affairs, vice president for external relations, director of strategic communications, among many others.

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

Concurrent SessionsConcurrent Sessions13Concurrent Session<em>(Sunday's concurrent sessions have not yet been assigned to a specific time. Additional sessions will be added to the website as they are confirmed.)</em><br> <div> <br> </div><div><h3>Academic Affairs 101  for Chief Advancement and Public Relations Officers</h3>A college’s academic policies, procedures, governance, and staffing can be opaque to those outside academic affairs. In this session, experienced CAOs will provide an overview of how an academic division works and discuss opportunities for collaboration among college leaders.<br> <blockquote> <strong> <em>Cynthia K. Kosso</em></strong>, Vice President for Academic Affairs, Moravian College<br><strong><em>Glenn R. Sharfman</em></strong>, Provost, Oglethorpe University<br></blockquote>  <h3>Advancement Benchmarking</h3>Higher education is increasingly data-driven, and boards, presidents, policy makers, and donors all demand performance metrics. Analytics also usefully inform advancement practice and strategy. With data from the CASE Voluntary Support of Education (VSE) survey, this session will provide an overview of key benchmarking metrics that are useful in fundraising and alumni relations, and it will explore the implications for independent colleges’ advancement programs and strategy.<br> <blockquote> <strong> <em>David Bass</em></strong>, Senior Director of Research, CASE<br></blockquote></div><div><h3> <br>Campus Planning and Student Learning</h3>The best campus master plan is intentionally developed through the lens of the student experience to ensure that learning takes place both inside and outside of the classroom. How do we invest in spaces that will serve students for years to come, given rapid changes in education technologies and student demographics? How can private colleges and universities effectively position themselves for an extended period of meaningful capital investment? Two CAO-CAdO teams will consider the role of campus master planning in capturing the institution’s vision of the student experience and the future of learning.<br> <blockquote> <strong> <em>David Hutchens</em></strong>, Vice President for Advancement, University of Pikeville<br><strong><em>Mark A. Roberts</em></strong>, Provost, Reinhardt University<br><strong><em>Lori Werth</em></strong>, Provost, University of Pikeville<br></blockquote></div><div><div><h3> <br>Compliance with Title IX and Related Legal Matters</h3>Title IX concerns of colleges and universities have expanded from equal opportunities for all students in intercollegiate athletics to equal educational experiences, including freedom from sexual harassment for all. Which are the most effective Title IX educational initiatives? Which aspects of training to prevent incidents of sexual harassment are most effective? How are compliance requirements changing? 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. Baker</em></strong>, Partner, Hirschfeld Kramer LLP<br></blockquote></div><h3> <br>Creating Value: The CIC Consortium for Instructional Excellence and Career Guidance</h3>In 2018, the Council of Independent Colleges and the Association of College and University Educators (ACUE), with support from Strada Education Network, formed the CIC Consortium for Instructional Excellence and Career Guidance. Through this Consortium, more than 500 faculty members at 26 CIC institutions have learned how to embed evidence-based teaching practices, career guidance, and skill development into their courses. In this session, leaders of Consortium institutions and ACUE will discuss the formation of the Consortium, progress to date, and findings of faculty and student impact. Panelists also will reflect on changing attitudes among faculty members on the relationship between a high-quality liberal arts education and career-readiness.<br> <blockquote> <strong> <em>Lynne Coy-Ogan</em></strong>, Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost, Husson University<br><strong><em>Penny MacCormack</em></strong>, Chief Academic Officer, ACUE<br><strong><em>Yolanda W. Page</em></strong>, Vice President for Academic Affairs, Dillard University<br></blockquote> <br> </div><div><h3>Crisis Communication</h3>Unexpected events that require coordinated internal and external communication seem to arise on campus with increasing frequency. It can be especially difficult to manage a narrative in reaction to tragic events. How can college leaders be proactive and plan for events when the details cannot be anticipated? Using real-world examples, this session will highlight strategies for handling these difficult situations and preparing for them as well as possible.<br> <blockquote> <strong> <em>Regina D. Biddings-Muro</em></strong>, Vice President for University Advancement, California Lutheran University<br><strong><em>Ron Cole</em></strong>, Provost, Allegheny College<br><strong><em>Leanne M. Neilson</em></strong>, Provost, California Lutheran University<br><strong><em>Susan Salton</em></strong>, Vice President for College Relations, Allegheny College</blockquote></div><div> <br> <h3>Fostering Resilience through Intergenerational Connections</h3>One of CIC’s most valuable services is to obtain foundation funding to support member institutions’ engagement with new ventures that enhance teaching, learning, and other critical aspects of their missions. In 2016, the AARP Foundation supported a network of more than 40 CIC colleges and universities to establish programs that benefit both students and older adults in their communities. Institutions have approached alumni, local organizations, and national foundations about long-term sustaining of their projects. This session offers a rare glimpse into the ways two senior officers—the chief academic officer and chief advancement officer—are working to sustain these programs and their considerable benefits.<br> <blockquote> <strong> <em>David Hayes</em></strong>, Vice President for Advancement, Coe College<br><strong><em>Glenell Lee-Pruitt</em></strong>, Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs, Jarvis Christian College<br><strong><em>Paula O’Loughlin</em></strong>, Provost and Dean of the Faculty, Coe College</blockquote></div><div> <br> <h3>Higher Education Legal Issues Roundup</h3>It is critical, especially in the current regulatory and political environment, for senior campus leaders to be up-to-date in their knowledge and understanding of key legal issues in higher education. A seasoned higher education attorney will offer an update on the most important legal issues for private colleges and universities.<br> <blockquote> <strong> <em>Susan Deniker</em></strong>, Attorney and Labor and Employment Practice Group Chair, Steptoe and Johnson PLLC</blockquote></div><div> <br> <h3>Institutional Support for Veterans’ Educational Aspirations</h3>Veterans and military students often take a less-traditional path to college, and many face formidable challenges in finishing a college degree. In this session, three chief academic officers will discuss ways their institutions help veterans meet these challenges and succeed as undergraduate students.<br> <blockquote> <strong> <em>Barbara Aranda-Naranjo</em></strong>, Interim Provost, University of the Incarnate Word<br><strong><em>Michael Evans</em></strong>, Vice President for Academic Affairs, Southern New Hampshire University<br><strong><em>Jonathan Reed</em></strong>, Provost, University of La Verne</blockquote></div><div> <br> <h3>Open Mike for Chief Academic, Chief Advancement, and Public Relations Officers</h3> <em>(Open only to currently-serving CAOs, CAdOs, and PROs.)</em><br>These senior leaders will have the opportunity to seek advice from colleagues on specific issues and to share information about emerging trends and practices in independent higher education.<br> <blockquote>Moderator: <strong> <em>Glenn R. Sharfman</em></strong>, Provost, Oglethorpe University, and Chair, CIC CAO-CAdO Task Force</blockquote></div><div> <br> <h3>The CAO-CAdO Partnership: Collaboration in Times of Change</h3>Both chief academic and chief advancement officers pursue ambitious strategic goals, including for new academic programs and construction projects. To achieve success in strategic plan implementation, CAOs and CAdOs collaborate and support each other in making the case for, and securing, new resources. Given bold institutional aspirations and external challenges that confront CAOs and CAdOs, maintaining a strong partnership is essential. During this session, two CAO-CAdO teams will describe how they have adapted and collaborated on key projects, such as restoration of a historic building and development of a corporate partnership, and outline lessons for other CAO- CAdO teams.<br> <blockquote> <strong> <em>Kathleen Hansen</em></strong>, Vice President for Institutional Advancement, College of Saint Benedict<br><strong><em>Richard Ice</em></strong>, Provost, College of Saint Benedict and St. John’s University<br><strong><em>John D. Kolander</em></strong>, Provost, Wisconsin Lutheran College<br><strong><em>Richard Mannisto</em></strong>, Vice President of Development and Strategic Initiatives, Wisconsin Lutheran College<br></blockquote>  <h3>Trends in Faculty Demographics and Perceptions</h3>Institutions across the United States continue to rely extensively on contingent faculty, as documented in the 2016 book, <cite>The Faculty Factory</cite>, by Martin Finkelstein, Valerie Martin Conley, and Jack H. Schuster. How has this trend influenced faculty work and satisfaction at small and medium-sized private colleges and universities? In this session, Martin Finkelstein will share updated faculty demographic information, and Kevin Eagan and Ellen Stolzenberg will report on faculty perceptions of work and key aspects of student learning from the most recent Higher Education Research Institute (HERI)<br>faculty survey.<br> <blockquote> <strong> <em>Kevin Eagan</em></strong>, Director, Higher Education Research Institute, UCLA<br><strong><em>Martin J. Finkelstein</em></strong>, Professor of Higher Education, Rutgers University<br><strong><em>Ellen Stolzenberg</em></strong>, Assistant Director of Research, Higher Education Research Institute, UCLA</blockquote></div>
Reception for Alumni of CIC’s Executive Leadership Academy and Senior Leadership Academy ProgramsReception for Alumni of CIC’s Executive Leadership Academy and Senior Leadership Academy Programs19Alumni of CIC’s leadership academies that are offered in cooperation with the American Academic Leadership Institute are invited to gather for light refreshments and invigorating conversation.<br><blockquote>Conveners: <strong><em>Linda M. Bleicken</em></strong>, President, American Academic Leadership Institute (AALI), and<br><strong><em>Barbara Hetrick</em></strong>, Senior Advisor, CIC<br></blockquote>
Workshop: "Advancement 101 for Chief Academic Officers"Workshop: "Advancement 101 for Chief Academic Officers"29WorkshopThe financial health of an institution depends on the strength of its external relationships, its ability to meet fundraising goals, and the quality of its academic programs. This workshop, tailored to chief academic officers but open to all Institute participants, will provide an overview of the core concepts and strategies that chief advancement officers use to promote the institution’s mission, maintain strong ties with alumni and other key constituencies, and expand the institution’s resources. The workshop will present specific examples from CIC institutions.<br><blockquote><strong><em></em></strong><strong><em></em></strong><strong><em></em></strong><strong><em>Linda Durant</em></strong>, Vice President for Development, CASE; former Senior Vice President for Advancement, Widener University<br><strong><em>James Watt</em></strong>, Vice President for Advancement, Juniata College<br></blockquote><br><em>No fee.</em><br><br><em>Note: This workshop requires pre-registration, as space is limited.</em>

Concurrent SessionsConcurrent Sessions34Concurrent Session<em>(Additional sessions will be added to the website as they are confirmed.)</em><br> <div> </div><div><br></div><div><h3>Gifts That Become a Challenge</h3>Generous gifts can cause controversy and angst, with some resulting in student protests, negative media coverage, or political scrutiny. Sometimes a gift is simply more trouble than it is worth, or it does not align with institutional mission or priorities. When and how should campus leaders say no? This session will use a workshop format to discuss lessons learned and steps to take to strengthen gift evaluation and acceptance policies and procedures. Participants are encouraged to bring examples to discuss.<br><blockquote><strong><em>Paul Heaton</em></strong>, Senior Director, Member Engagement, CASE<br><strong><em>James R. Watt</em></strong>, Vice President for Advancement, Juniata College<br></blockquote></div><div><h3><br>Partnerships to Promote Online Humanities</h3>CIC’s Consortia for Online Humanities Instruction project, supported by Ithaka S+R and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, explored approaches to online learning that engaged institutions in collaborative efforts to build capacity in humanities disciplines. Four academic leaders of CIC member institutions will share their institutions’ successes in adapting upper-level humanities courses across disciplines ranging from art history to philosophy.<br><blockquote><strong><em>Matthew Gordley</em></strong>, Dean of the College of Learning and Innovation, Carlow University<br><strong><em>Tresmaine R.

Workshop for CAOs in Their Third or Fourth Year of ServiceWorkshop for CAOs in Their Third or Fourth Year of Service3WorkshopEntering the third or fourth year of service, chief academic officers usually have mastered the fundamentals of the role and found a measure of ease in their work. At this stage, CAOs will have greater opportunities to lead rather than just manage. What are the key questions CAOs can and should address at this stage in their tenure? For example, how do CAOs balance attention to their institutions’ immediate issues with long-term academic needs? How do CAOs work effectively with the president and other cabinet officers on strategic planning for the good of their institutions? How do CAOs attend to their own professional lives while also serving their institutions? Participants will explore these and related questions and gain fresh perspectives on the next stage in their careers as CAOs.<br><blockquote>Workshop Facilitators:<br><strong><em>Kim Coplin</em></strong>, Provost, Denison University<br><strong><em>Paula F. Dehn</em></strong>, Vice President for Academic Affairs and Dean of the College, Kentucky Wesleyan College</blockquote><em>Fee: early rate $65 (by September 6); regular rate $80 (after September 6)</em><br><em>The fee covers materials, lunch, and refreshments.</em><br><br><em>Note: This workshop requires pre-registration, as space is limited.</em>

Plenary Session: Illah R. NourbakhshPlenary Session: Illah R. Nourbakhsh12Illah R. NourbakhshPlenary Session<h3>Technology, Education, and Our Robot Future</h3><div> advent of artificial intelligence is transforming work and education at a rapid pace. How will the advances in human intelligence simulation affect our lives in the future? How can machine learning and robotics be deployed to support, rather than detract from, student learning in college? Graduates of our educational institutions will shape our robot future and help us understand and manage the ethical implications of artificial intelligence. Promotion of technology fluency—the ability to be a developer and shaper, rather than merely a consumer, of these technologies—is the key to student success and personal fulfillment in the decades of change ahead.<br></div>

Plenary Session: Scott JaschikPlenary Session: Scott Jaschik24Scott JaschikPlenary Session<h3>Perceptions and Challenges for Higher Education</h3>recent college admissions/athletics scandal exacerbated the public’s mistrust of higher education. The apparent lack of accountability and elitism on top of rising student loan debt amplified the frustration of policy makers, students, and their families. While not central in these scandals, all of higher education suffered in public opinion. How can independent colleges tackle new challenges and regain public trust? Better communication with a concerted effort to address the sources of these generalized perceptions can help heal the rifts between public and private higher education and between large and small institutions.<br>

These projects often are initially designed to meet an increasing student demand for space. Approaches that reinforce university values, explore new partnerships, and engage non-science divisions, however, can excite a donor base and change institutions in unexpected ways.

Award- winning author, scholar, filmmaker, radio host, and educator Karsonya (Kaye) Wise Whitehead will outline the history of Baltimore City and its struggles with violence and inequality. Despite fraught politics, there is resilience and strength emerging out of the education system, community activism, and neighborhood partnerships.<br> <blockquote> <strong><em>Karsonya Whitehead</em></strong>, Associate Professor of Communication, Loyola University Maryland</blockquote></div>

ShapiroPlenary Session<h3>A College President’s View of Academic and Advancement Officers; and a Foundation President’s View of all Three</h3><p> Aligning a college’s advancement and academic affairs leaders to pursue institution-wide objectives is ultimately the president’s responsibility. Although all three senior officers share the core goals of a liberal arts education, interaction with donors, alumni, and foundation officers requires that they form an effective leadership team. Changes are afoot in the foundation world, donors have evolving expectations, and colleges and universities seeking philanthropic help face challenging transformations of their own. Judith Shapiro, who has been a chief academic officer, president, highly successful fundraiser, and president of a foundation that has made significant commitments to private colleges and universities, will share her perspective on the emerging changes that face funders and colleges alike.<br></p>

 Local Attractions

American Visionary Art Museum

The American Visionary Museum displays works of artists not formally trained. Many exhibits leave the viewer wanting to know more about the thought process and vision of the creator. The museum exhibits drawings, paintings, and sculptures of “Visionary” artists.


Baltimore & Ohio Railroad Museum

Following the collapse of its roundhouse roof in a snowstorm, the B&O Railroad Museum might have remained closed forever. But through perseverance and hard work, the museum reopened with many improvements. The beautiful roundhouse is thoroughly renovated and showcases a variety of interactive exhibits, a number of historic engines, and fascinating railroad equipment. A “must see” for railroad buffs, the museum was the first of its kind admitted to the Smithsonian Affiliates program. Souvenirs, videos, books, and clothing are available at the gift shop.


Baltimore Basilica

The Baltimore Basilica, formerly the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, was the first Roman Catholic cathedral built in the United States. Constructed from 1806 to 1821, the Baltimore Basilica is an impressive architectural masterpiece and a National Historic Landmark.


Baltimore Museum of Art

The Baltimore Museum of Art (BMA) is home to more than 95,000 works of art, including an extensive collection of American Art dating back to the colonial period, along with contemporary painting and sculpture from around the world. BMA also is one of the first museums in the country to have exhibited works by African American artists. Located three miles north of Baltimore’s Inner Harbor, the museum is open Wednesday through Sunday, from 10:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. Admission is free.


Fells Point

Fells Point is a historic waterfront neighborhood located along the north shore of the Baltimore Harbor and the northwest branch of the Patapsco River. Named for the Englishmen who founded a ship-building company in 1726 that would go on to produce the famous “Baltimore Schooners,” Fells Point is a spirited waterfront community in perpetual celebration of Baltimore’s British nautical roots. The neighborhood’s visage has remained largely unchanged since its founding and attracts many visitors.


Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine

Built on a peninsula, Fort McHenry played a crucial role in one of the key battles in the War of 1812. It is considered the birthplace of the U.S. national anthem, where Francis Scott Key was moved to write the “The Star Spangled Banner” lyrics as he watched the fort’s bombardment. When a new flag is designed, it flies over Fort McHenry first. It is currently the only site in the United States designated as both a national monument and a historic shrine.


Geppi’s Entertainment Museum

Located in Camden Station at Camden Yards, Geppi’s Entertainment Museum is a quirky specialty museum that shows the influence of pop culture on everyday lives through its displays of toys, comic books, posters, and memorabilia. With more than 8,000 items, the collection spans over three centuries dating back to the 1700s.


Maryland Science Center

Located a few blocks from the Inner Harbor, the Science Center offers interactive educational displays within its three floors of exhibits. The most popular exhibits include Outer Space Place, where the Hubble Space Telescope National Visitor Center and Space Link are housed; DinoQuest; an IMAX Theater; and the Davis Planetarium.


National Aquarium

The National Aquarium in Baltimore, whose mission is to inspire conservation of the world’s aquatic treasures, is Maryland’s number one tourist attraction. Visitors will feel as though they are part of the resident sharks’ habitat as they walk inside the donut-shaped shark tank. Dolphin Discovery is the aquarium’s largest exhibit, home to seven Atlantic bottle-nosed dolphins. The aquarium’s conservation efforts include partnerships with local organizations to improve and preserve the natural beauty and wildlife habitat of Baltimore’s harbor.


USS Constellation

The USS Constellation is a massive vessel that was instrumental in cutting off illegal slave trade routes to the area. Built in 1854, the Constellation is one of three ships that make up the Historic Ships collection in the Harbor. The Constellation displays sleeping, eating, and medical quarters, along with countless military artifacts within its bowels.
