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.

 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.
