Closing Plenary Session: Mariët WestermannClosing Plenary Session: Mariët Westermann35Mariët WestermannPlenary Session<h3>Strategic Directions in Arts and Humanities</h3><p> Recent demands for higher education institutions to train students for careers has led to new pressure on core subjects in arts and humanities. How can liberal arts faculty members and administrators continue to make the case for their academic disciplines? Scholars at the leading edge of the liberal arts are promoting humanities for all. With the application of new thinking in these subjects, we can use our community as well as cultural and academic resources to broaden the impact of education in arts and humanities.</p>

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. This session will outline the key hurdles to overcome when planning and fundraising to renovate or build state-of-the-art STEM facilities.  <br> <blockquote> <strong> <em>Noel Painter</em></strong>, Executive Vice President and Provost, Stetson University<br></blockquote><div> <br> </div><h3>Promoting Diversity and Civility through Liberal Arts</h3>Protests and unrest on today’s campuses can be addressed by encouraging students to study and discuss recent research in the humanities and social sciences. CAOs of four 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 enhanced diversity and civility on their campuses. <br> <blockquote> <strong> <em>Christon Arthur</em></strong>, Provost, Andrews University<br><strong><em>Jo Beld</em></strong>, Vice President for Mission, St. Olaf College<br><strong><em>Jeffrey Carlson</em></strong>, Provost, Vice President for Academic Affairs, and Professor of Theology, Dominican University (Illinois)<br><strong><em>Debbie Cottrell</em></strong>, Vice President for Academic Affairs, Texas Lutheran University<br><strong><em>Liz Frombgen</em></strong>, Vice President for Academic Affairs and Dean of the College, Thiel College<br><strong><em>Bruce King</em></strong>, Assistant to the President for Institutional Diversity, St. Olaf College<br> </blockquote><div> <br> </div><h3>Follow-up: “Perceptions and Challenges for Higher Education”</h3>Participants will meet informally with Scott Jaschik for additional discussion of the ideas in his plenary address.<br> <blockquote> <strong> <em>Scott Jaschik</em></strong>, Editor and Cofounder, <cite>Inside Higher Ed</cite><br> </blockquote><div> <br> </div><h3>Hiring and Evaluation Part I: Best Practices for Hiring</h3>The current political and legal environments require chief academic, chief advancement, and public relations officers to think carefully about the legal risks associated with searches to fill faculty and staff positions. 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 Rinehart</em></strong>, President, Cardinal Stritch University<br> </blockquote><div> <br> </div><h3>Hiring and Evaluation Part II: Best Practices for Performance Evaluation</h3>The current regulatory and legal environments require 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 Rinehart</em></strong>, President, Cardinal Stritch University<br> </blockquote><div> <br> </div><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 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. Sharfman</em></strong>, Provost, Oglethorpe University, and Chair, CIC CAO-CAdO Task Force<br> </blockquote><div> <br> </div><h3>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 Grimes</em></strong>, Vice President for Academic Affairs and Dean of the Faculty, Bloomfield College<br><strong><em>Cynthia Kosso</em></strong>, Vice President for Academic Affairs, Moravian College<br><strong><em>Jim Ostrow</em></strong>, Vice President for Academic Affairs, Lasell College<br></blockquote><div> <br> </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. Experienced CAOs will provide an overview of how an academic division works and discuss opportunities for collaboration among college leaders.<br> <blockquote> <strong> <em>Glenn Sharfman</em></strong>, Provost, Oglethorpe University</blockquote>

Plenary Session: Illah NourbakhshPlenary Session: Illah Nourbakhsh12Illah NourbakhshPlenary Session<h3>Technology, Education, and Our Robot Future</h3><div> The advent of artificial intelligence is transforming work and education at a rapid pace. 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>

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? Participants will explore these and related questions and gain fresh perspectives on the next stage in their careers as CAOs.<br><blockquote><strong>Workshop Facilitators:</strong><br><strong><em>Paula Dehn</em></strong>, Vice President for Academic Affairs and Dean of the College, Kentucky Wesleyan College<br><div><strong><em>Kim Coplin</em></strong>, Provost, Denison University</div></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>
