About the Institute

Change in higher education today is rapid and inevitable. Campus leaders are expected to adapt to demographic shifts, technological innovations, and public criticism even as they maintain fundamental academic traditions and proven educational practices. The theme of CIC’s 47th Institute—“Change: Continuity, Communication, and Connection”—provides a framework for discussion of how to integrate adaptation and continuity, ensure institutional success, and sustain robust learning communities.

Leaders who face the imperative to adapt must 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 2019 Institute offers participants the opportunity to learn about successful strategies that have enabled college leaders to develop effective partnerships. These succeed when alumni and donors are engaged in the design and finance of complex projects and initiatives. Institute sessions offer practical advice on such topics as the use of data in managing academic programs and updates on current legal issues in hiring and Title IX compliance.

The 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. 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 college 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.

Additional sessions will be added to the website as they are confirmed.)</em><br> <div> <br> </div><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. Three chief academic officers of CIC member institutions 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<br></blockquote><div> <br> </div><h3>The CAO-CAdO Partnership: Collaboration in Times of Change</h3>Chief academic and chief advancement officers both pursue ambitious strategic goals, including construction projects and new academic programs. 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 college aspirations and external challenges that confront CAOs and CAdOs, maintaining a strong partnership is essential. Two CAO-CAdO teams will describe how they have adapted and collaborated on key projects, such as historic building renovation and corporate partnership development. They will 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 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><div> <br> </div><h3>Planning and Fundraising for Science Buildings</h3>With rapid technological change and special space requirements, science buildings can present both strategic and practical challenges for college leaders.

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 will report on faculty perceptions of work and key aspects of student learning from the most recent Higher Education Research Institute (HERI) faculty survey. <br> <blockquote> <strong><em>Martin Finkelstein</em></strong>, Professor of Higher Education, Rutgers University<br> </blockquote><div> <br> </div><h3>Open Mike for Chief Academic, and Chief Advancement Officers</h3> <em>(Open only to currently-serving CAOs and CAdOs.)</em><br>CAOs and CAdOs 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.

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 they attend to their own professional lives while also serving their institutions? How do CAOs work effectively with the president and other cabinet officers on strategic planning for the good of their institutions?

How will new technologies affect our lives in the future? How can machine learning and robotics be used to support, rather than detract from, student learning in college? Our educational institutions can 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 producer, 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>The college admissions scandal exacerbated the public’s mistrust of higher education. The appearance of lack of accountability and elitism on top of rising student loan debt amplified the frustration of policy makers, students, and their families. How can independent colleges tackle new challenges and regain public trust? Better communication with a concerted effort to address the sources of these misguided perceptions can help heal the rift between the public and private higher education.<br>

 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. Its construction lasted from 1806 to 1821, and the cathedral is both a religious and cultural institution. The Baltimore Basilica is an impressive architectural masterpiece and is a National Historic Landmark.


Baltimore Museum of Art

The Baltimore Museum of Art (BMA) is home to 90,000 works of art and the Walters Art Museum. Admission to both museums has been free since 2006 as a result of grants by Baltimore City and Baltimore County. BMA has an extensive and impressive collection of American Art dating back to the colonial period. It also is one of the first museums in the country to display exhibits of African American artists.


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 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 to be 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. This attraction’s best and most popular exhibits include Outer Space Place, where the Hubble Space Telescope National Visitor Center and Space Link are housed; DinoQuest; the IMAX Theater; and the Davis Planetarium.


National Aquarium

The National Aquarium in Baltimore, a nonprofit organization 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 presentations always draw a crowd at the Marine Mammal Pavilion.


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.
