Closing Plenary Session: Judith R. ShapiroClosing Plenary Session: Judith R. Shapiro35Judith R. 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>
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.

An experienced higher education attorney will discuss best search practices when drafting a position description, appointing and preparing the search committee, building the pool of applicants, interviewing candidates, checking references, and completing background checks.<br><blockquote><strong><em>Kathleen A. Rinehart</em></strong>, President, Cardinal Stritch University</blockquote></div><div> <br> <h3>Hiring and Evaluation Part II: Best Practices in Performance Evaluation</h3>The current regulatory and legal environment requires chief academic, chief advancement, and public relations officers to think carefully about the legal risks campuses face when evaluating the performance of faculty and staff members, especially when dealing with unacceptable behavior, poor performance, and the possible termination of employees. An experienced higher education attorney will share practices and tools that can help administrators conduct meaningful evaluations while minimizing risk to the institution and themselves.<br><blockquote><strong><em>Kathleen A. Rinehart</em></strong>, President, Cardinal Stritch University</blockquote></div><div> <br> <h3>Projects to Construct Science Buildings That Transform an Institution</h3>With rapid technological change and special space requirements, science buildings can present both strategic and practical opportunities and challenges for college leaders. 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. This session will outline two projects—the largest development activities in the history of both schools—and the unexpected ways in which the fundraising and design process opened up avenues that are transforming their institutions.<br><blockquote><strong><em>Timothy Elgren</em></strong>, Special Advisor on Strategic Initiatives, Stetson University<br><strong><em>Noel Painter</em></strong>, Executive Vice President and Provost, Stetson University</blockquote></div><div> <br> <h3>Promoting Diversity and Civility through Liberal Arts</h3>Protests and unrest on today’s campuses can be addressed by encouraging students to consider and discuss recent research in the humanities and social sciences on diversity and identity. CAOs of three CIC institutions will share lessons learned at CIC’s Diversity, Civility, and the Liberal Arts Institute. The lessons led to the creation of innovative campus projects that integrate liberal arts teaching and learning into curricular and co- curricular approaches to deepen understanding of the dimensions of diversity and civility on their campuses.<br><blockquote><strong><em>Christon G.

An experienced higher education attorney will discuss best search practices when drafting a position description, appointing and preparing the search committee, building the pool of applicants, interviewing candidates, checking references, and completing background checks.<br> <blockquote> <strong><em>Kathleen A. Rinehart</em></strong>, President, Cardinal Stritch University</blockquote></div><div> <br> <h3>Hiring and Evaluation Part II: Best Practices in Performance Evaluation</h3>The current regulatory and legal environment requires chief academic, chief advancement, and public relations officers to think carefully about the legal risks campuses face when evaluating the performance of faculty and staff members, especially when dealing with unacceptable behavior, poor performance, and the possible termination of employees. An experienced higher education attorney will share practices and tools that can help administrators conduct meaningful evaluations while minimizing risk to the institution and themselves.<br> <blockquote> <strong><em>Kathleen A. Rinehart</em></strong>, President, Cardinal Stritch University</blockquote></div><div> <br> <h3>Projects to Construct Science Buildings That Transform an Institution</h3>With rapid technological change and special space requirements, science buildings can present both strategic and practical opportunities and challenges for college leaders. 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. This session will outline two projects—the largest development activities in the history of both schools—and the unexpected ways in which the fundraising and design process opened up avenues that are transforming their institutions.<br> <blockquote> <strong><em>Timothy Elgren</em></strong>, Special Advisor on Strategic Initiatives, Stetson University<br><strong><em>Noel Painter</em></strong>, Executive Vice President and Provost, Stetson University</blockquote></div><div> <br> <h3>Promoting Diversity and Civility through Liberal Arts</h3>Protests and unrest on today’s campuses can be addressed by encouraging students to consider and discuss recent research in the humanities and social sciences on diversity and identity. CAOs of three CIC institutions will share lessons learned at CIC’s Diversity, Civility, and the Liberal Arts Institute. The lessons led to the creation of innovative campus projects that integrate liberal arts teaching and learning into curricular and co- curricular approaches to deepen understanding of the dimensions of diversity and civility on their campuses.<br> <blockquote> <strong><em>Christon G.

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.

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>

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.
