Participants are invited to exchange information and to seek advice about programs and other strategies that promote student academic success and persistence to graduation.<br> <blockquote> <strong><em>Tynisha Willingham</em></strong>, Vice President for Academic Affairs and Chief Academic Officer, Mary Baldwin University<br></blockquote> <br> <h3>Building Relationships with HBCUs to Promote Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion</h3>Lane College, one of seven HBCUs in Tennessee, has partnered with a majority-white university on innovative diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives, including joint courses co-taught by faculty members from both institutions and a grant-funded faculty development program on culturally sensitive pedagogy. Lane’s chief academic officer will facilitate a conversation about the process of building the relationship, obstacles that were overcome, and the mutual benefits that have resulted. Participants are invited to ask questions and seek advice about how to develop similar partnerships.<br> <blockquote> <strong><em>Daryll Coleman</em></strong>, Vice President for Academic Affairs, Lane College<br></blockquote> <br> <h3>CIC-TEP: A Benefit to Support Your Employees and Their Families</h3>Help your employees and their families meet their educational goals by participating in CIC-TEP. Learn about how this benefit program works and how your employees can receive free tuition for their spouses and children at select institutions. With more than 400 participating schools, CIC-TEP can play an important role in recruiting and retaining talented employees who share your commitment to independent higher education. <br> <blockquote> <strong> <em>Faith Brown</em></strong>, Tuition Exchange and Programs Manager, CIC <br> <strong> <em>Jo Ellen Parker</em></strong>, Senior Vice President, CIC<br></blockquote> <br> <h3>Dealing with Faculty and Staff Burnout </h3>Faculty and staff burnout remains a pressing issue on many college and university campuses. How are senior leaders at CIC institutions addressing the problem? What new policies and programs are being enacted to help faculty and staff members prioritize self-care and restore work-life balance? Participants in this conversation will address these questions and share effective practices for creating a campus culture of support. <br> <blockquote> <strong> <em>Danette Ifert Johnson</em></strong>, Provost, Kalamazoo College <br></blockquote> <br> <h3>Federal Grant Support for Expanding Recruitment and Strengthening Retention: A Review of Opportunities for 2023</h3>Student enrollment and retention are at the top of mind for executive leadership at small and mid-sized liberal arts colleges, most of whom depend on tuition revenue as essential to their financial sustainability. McAllister & Quinn has identified the key federal grants in 2023 that fund recruitment and retention initiatives on college campuses. Their team will share intelligence on recommendations from federal funding sources that include the National Science Foundation, Health Resources and Services Administration, and the Department of Education.<br> <blockquote> <strong><em>Frank Boyd</em></strong>, Vice President, McAllister & Quinn<br><strong><em>Jessica Gerrity</em></strong>, Senior Vice President, McAllister & Quinn<br></blockquote> <br> <h3>Foster a Culture of Belonging, Campus-wide: CIC’s new “BELONG” Community</h3>CIC and the Association of College and University Educators (ACUE) recently launched “BELONG: The CIC & ACUE Inclusive Learning Community.” This new network—exclusive to CIC—responds to members’ desire to strengthen campus cultures with inclusive practices. BELONG members will have the opportunity to credential both faculty and staff through ACUE’s new offering “Fostering a Culture of Belonging.” This course, with related webinars and other resources, prepares professors and non-instructors to manage potential biases, address imposter phenomenon and stereotype threat, and reduce microaggressions among other practical approaches. CIC developed this initiative in recognition of ACUE’s national leadership on effective college instruction. Students taught by ACUE-certified faculty learn more, complete more courses, and retain in greater number, <em>with greater equity by race, ethnicity, and socioeconomic status</em>, national studies show. Join representatives from ACUE and CIC as they lead a conversation about this new course and network and share opportunities for member institutions to get involved. <br> <blockquote> <strong> <em>Bacari K. Brown</em></strong>, Partnership Development Director, ACUE<br><strong><em>Laurie Pendleton</em></strong>, Executive Director, Curriculum and Assessment, ACUE<br></blockquote> <br> <h3>How Institutions Use Data to Drive Enrollment</h3>Data and its analysis allow campus leaders to better collaborate on decisions that help future-proof their institutions. For many tuition-dependent colleges and universities, keeping enrollment numbers up is crucial to their sustainability. Leaders often need to answer questions like, “How do I increase enrollment of the best-fit students?” “How are prospects progressing through the funnel?” and “What actions increase conversion rates?” Using data to answer these questions helps create recruitment strategies that enable institutions to increase net revenue and surpass enrollment goals. Join leaders from Berry College and Jenzabar for a roundtable discussion of how data drives enrollment.<br> <blockquote> <strong><em>Andrew Bressette</em></strong>, Vice President of Enrollment Management, Berry College<br><strong><em>Jaime Moquin</em></strong>, Vice President of Engagement and Customer Success, Jenzabar<br></blockquote> <br> <h3>International Student Recruitment and Enrollment as Meaningful Intervention Strategy</h3>As the enrollment downturn continues to affect America’s higher education sector, institutions must reiterate and promote their brand in an ever-competing landscape domestically and abroad. Working with independent agents is one path. Staffing up with local and international expertise is another but what’s cost effective and is there a middle ground toward improving enrollments with a more affordable and scalable approach? This discussion will focus on practical ways to plan and implement international strategy at your institution whether you are approaching this for the first time or just looking for an approach to augment your current success.<br> <blockquote> <strong><em>Darrin Francis</em></strong>, Director of Northern American Partnerships, Cialfo<br></blockquote> <br> <h3>Knowledge for Freedom: Building Inspiring Humanities Programs for Underserved High School Students</h3>How can CIC member institutions engage underserved high school students in their local communities through rich humanities teaching? The Knowledge for Freedom program, funded by the Teagle Foundation, supports programs at liberal arts institutions that invite underserved high school students to college to study humanity’s deepest questions about leading lives of purpose and civic responsibility. These high school students come into residence on a college campus, where they experience the intensity of a seminar-sized discussion taught by college professors focused on major works of philosophy and literature. Over the following year, while applying to college as high school seniors, the students engage in civic initiatives inspired by the recognition that their lives are interconnected with the lives of others. In this roundtable discussion, participants will learn from leaders of a Knowledge for Freedom program at a CIC member institution about the process of designing these programs and their achievements so far. <br> <blockquote> <strong> <em>Matthew Spring</em></strong>, Director of Academic Success and First Gen Initiatives, University of Dallas<br><strong><em>José Espericueta</em></strong>, Associate Professor of Spanish and Chair, Department of Modern Languages, University of Dallas<br></blockquote> <br> <h3>Pioneering Chief Officers as Change Agents </h3>Susquehanna’s CAO and CEMO, who are the first persons of color in their respective roles at their university, will share insights from their experiences as institutional change agents, including how they set priorities, navigated minefields, and assessed progress on goals. They look forward to hearing the perspectives of other pioneering chief officers about their campus challenges and lessons learned about how to advance meaningful change. <br> <blockquote> <strong> <em>D.J. Menifee</em></strong>, Vice President for Enrollment, Susquehanna University<br><strong><em>Dave Ramsaran</em></strong>, Provost and Dean of Faculty, Susquehanna University<br></blockquote> <br> <h3>Student-Centered Resources for Improving Undergraduate Success</h3>Student success depends upon a multitude of factors, but chief among them are the institutional resources that students experience directly. By devoting adequate human and financial resources to student-centered programming, academic institutions can improve their capacity to attain retention and graduation goals. Join this roundtable to discuss how programs focused on mentoring, internships, and students’ specific interests and cohorts (athletics, community engagement, or the arts) have made a real difference in helping students succeed. This session will also provide an opportunity to learn about new ways of financing this kind of programming through grants administered by CIC’s Network for Vocation in Undergraduate Education (NetVUE).<br> <blockquote> <strong><em>David S. Cunningham</em></strong>, Director of NetVUE, CIC<br><strong><em>Remylin Bruder</em></strong>, Provost, Rochester University (MI)<br></blockquote> <br> <h3>Supporting Historically Underrepresented Students through OER </h3>With grant support from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, CIC recently published a report on the use of Open Educational Resources (OER) at CIC member institutions. The report, <cite>Access and Innovation: The Use of OER at Smaller Independent Colleges and Universities to Support Historically Underrepresented Students</cite>, provides a snapshot of the OER landscape in this sector. Featuring case studies of minority-serving institutions who have developed robust use of OER on their campuses, the report illustrates several ways that integrating OER into the curriculum can be a successful strategy to support institutional goals. The facilitator will share insights from the report on the use of OER at these institutions, and participants are invited to discuss their experiences and raise questions about implementing OER at their own institutions.<br> <blockquote><strong><em>Annika Many</em></strong>, Principal, edBridge Partners, LLC <br></blockquote> <br> <h3>Understanding Today’s Graduate and Online Student: Seizing Opportunities for Enrollment and Revenue Growth</h3>As the graduate and online markets evolve, campuses face new challenges and complexities bringing new programs to life, onboarding and integrating new tech, increasing activity and measuring engagement, and proving ROI from marketing and admissions investments. In this roundtable session, RNL’s chief academic officer explores how program and course design choices, utilizing sound pedagogical practices, innovative technologies, and authentic assessments will maximize students' engagement and performance.<br> <blockquote><strong><em>Cherron Hoppes</em></strong>, Chief Academic Officer, RNL</blockquote>

But the combined pressures of licensure requirements, multiple majors, and occasional turf battles can make this goal difficult to achieve. Many institutions have found the concepts of meaning, purpose, and identity to be extremely useful in helping students understand the interconnected nature of the undergraduate curriculum, and in some instances the related language of vocation and calling has proven useful as well. Join this roundtable to discuss with colleagues how meaning and purpose can serve as integrating principles for the curriculum, and how CIC can support this work through its Network for Vocation in Undergraduate Education (NetVUE).<br><blockquote><strong><em>David S. Cunningham</em></strong>, Director of NetVUE, CIC<br><strong><em>Kerry Pannell</em></strong>, Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs, Presbyterian College<br></blockquote><br><h3>New Approaches to Study Abroad</h3>After a two-year hiatus, study abroad programs are beginning to resume.

Deeds</em></strong>, Provost Emeritus, Morningside University<br></blockquote><br><h3>Improving Science Pedagogy on Your Campus</h3>Making science accessible to students has been a major challenge. To address this concern and enhance the effectiveness of science education, CIC held a series of Seminars on Science Pedagogy, funded by the W. M. Keck Foundation. In this session, participating campus team leaders will discuss the impact of the seminars on faculty members and students at their institutions and how that impact can be sustained and serve as a foundation for additional growth. Did implementing the new interactive methods or techniques in courses improve overall inclusivity and participation in class? Were faculty members more willing to discuss pedagogy challenges and innovations with colleagues? How can CAOs support and encourage faculty members who are trying new methods or techniques?<br><blockquote><strong><em>Amanda J.

Concurrent SessionsConcurrent Sessions5Concurrent Session<em>Sponsored by Metz Culinary Management</em><br> <div> <br> </div><h3>Attracting and Retaining a Student Population that Meets Academic, Enrollment, and Financial Needs</h3>Within independent higher education, institutions are unique in their missions, in who they serve, and how they program the educational experience for their students. It is essential to manage enrollment to ensure that enough tuition is generated to keep the institution in operation, particularly at institutions with smaller endowments and fewer avenues for generating revenue. This panel will discuss the importance of and examples of strategic collaboration between academic affairs, enrollment management, and business affairs working in alignment to attract and retain cohorts of students who can benefit from the academic program and generate the tuition required to run the institution.<br> <blockquote> <strong><em>Andrew R. Bressette</em></strong>, Vice President for Enrollment Management, Berry College<br><strong><em>Tina DeNeen</em></strong>, Associate Executive Director, Education and Member Development, American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers<br><strong><em>Cindy Marlow McClenagan</em></strong>, Vice President for Academic Affairs, Wayland Baptist University<br><strong><em>Brad Reeder</em></strong>, Assistant Vice President for Financial Services, Berry College<br> <div>Chair: <strong> <em>Mollie Cecere</em></strong>, Vice President for Enrollment Management and Marketing, Carlow University</div></blockquote> <br> <h3>Building a Culture of Transfer across the Institution: Lessons from Transfer Pathways Initiatives</h3>Transfer pathways are designed to provide community college transfer students with clear guidelines to achieve a baccalaureate degree in the field of their choosing. For these students to achieve their goals and thrive, they require multi-faceted support across admissions, advising, academic programs, and financial aid. In this session, two institutional teams will share their insights into building a strong culture of transfer on campus to complement the creation of new, discipline-specific transfer pathways. Both institutions are participants in Transfer Pathways to the Liberal Arts projects, jointly sponsored by the Teagle Foundation and the Arthur Vining Davis Foundations.<br> <blockquote> <strong><em></em></strong><strong><em>Jeff Frederick</em></strong>, Provost, Wingate University<br><strong><em>Melissa Perdue</em></strong>, Chief Financial Officer, Wingate University <br> <strong> <em>Marcy Ritzert</em></strong>, Vice President for Enrollment, Muskingum University<br>Chair: <strong> <em>Laura Furge</em></strong>, Provost, Muhlenberg College<br></blockquote> <br> <h3>Continuous Transformation for Sustainable Business Models</h3>In dynamic and competitive environments, continuous transformation is necessary if institutions are to survive and flourish. Continuous innovation is required to move from old models of business to transformative models, but innovation is not a static, one-step process occurring in silos. A team of colleagues from an institution who work collaboratively will share how building a culture of continuous transformation can result in strong, sustainable business models. In this session, participants will engage in discussions to assess the systems and structures that impact its ability to embrace a transformation mindset and provide examples of strategies deployed in the continuous model that includes a tactical deployment of limited resources.<br> <blockquote> <strong><em>Judy Roy</em></strong>, Executive Vice President for Finance and Administration, Indiana Institute of Technology<br><strong><em>Steve Herendeen</em></strong>, Vice President for Enrollment Management, Indiana Institute of Technology<br><strong><em>Kate Watland</em></strong>, Vice President for Academic Affairs, Indiana Institute of Technology<br>Chair: <strong> <em>Teresa Garrett</em></strong>, Vice President for Academic Affairs and Dean of the College, Sweet Briar College<br> </blockquote><div> <br> </div><h3>Cross-divisional Partnerships and Collaboration</h3>Institutions of higher education, like other organizations, have long recognized the importance of cross-divisional collaboration in achieving missions and goals. Collaboration produces a synergy that yields more, saves more, and achieves more. Yet, many campuses are full of examples of where this does not happen. In difficult economic times it becomes even more important that people work together across silos to ensure the institutions are efficiently deploying their resources. This panel will share examples of how institutions efficiently utilize cross-divisional partnerships for effective processes and solutions.<br> <blockquote> <strong><em>Katherine Beutel</em></strong>, Interim Vice President for Academic Affairs, Lourdes University<br><strong><em>Kendrick T. Brown</em></strong>, Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs, Morehouse College<br><strong><em>Undria Stalling</em></strong>, Senior Vice President of Business and Finance and Chief Financial Officer, Morehouse College<br>Chair: <strong> <em>Jeffrey Frick</em></strong>, Vice President for Academic Affairs and Dean of the College, Washington & Jefferson College<br></blockquote><div> <br> </div><h3>Introducing Badges, Microcredentials, and Certificates with Credit Bearing Programs<br></h3>How do campuses respond to the public cynicism about the value of a liberal arts education, especially as a pathway for career-readiness? And how do colleges prepare students for the future of work? A “liberal arts plus” program is designed to complement other high impact practices to make graduates market ready. Badges, microcredentials, and certificates provide an avenue for students to document the totality of their learning experience, including skills that do not fall neatly within majors. This panel will focus on how colleges can introduce workforce development and non-credit opportunities.<br> <blockquote> <strong><em>D. Nathan Phinney</em></strong>, Vice President for Academic Affairs, Northwestern College (IA)<br><strong><em>Eden Wales Freedman</em></strong>, Vice President for Academic Affairs and Dean of the Faculty, Clarke University<br><strong><em>Erica Vonk</em></strong>, Assistant Professor of Business and Director, Center for Innovation and Leadership, Northwestern College (IA)<br>Chair: <strong> <em>Karen Lee</em></strong>, Provost, Wheaton College</blockquote>
Concurrent SessionsConcurrent Sessions18Concurrent Session<em>Sponsored by EAB</em><br><br><h3>Cultivating Leadership Teams that Work Well Together</h3>This panel presents two successful models of intentionally cultivating leadership at different levels and among different groups on campus. Both have achieved remarkable success. One model describes a faculty leadership academy which has been in place for the past seven years. The presenter will share the central ingredients that have contributed to the success of the academy, and help others imagine how to develop or reshape a leadership program that best meets their institutions’ needs. The other model is a strategic enrollment council with participation from admissions, academic affairs, financial aid, student life, retention, marketing, athletics, student accounts, alumni/development, faculty, DEI, and IT participants. This model focuses on working across silos to find leaders who work well together for the benefit of the institution. Participants will leave with replicable examples of how to develop leaders who work well together.<br><blockquote><strong><em>Sarah Coen</em></strong>, Vice President of Strategic Initiatives and Enrollment Management, Transylvania University<br><strong><em>Wendy Hilton-Morrow</em></strong>, Provost, Vice President for Academic Affairs, and Dean of the College, Augustana College (IL)<br>Chair: <strong><em>Monique Taylor</em></strong>, Provost and Chief Academic Officer, Champlain College<br></blockquote><br><h3>Examples of Forward-Looking Excellence</h3>This panel will showcase a diverse sample of forward-looking initiatives on campuses to provoke creative thinking. Examples will include programs for student development and preparation for post-graduation work life, intentionally planned cross-divisional collaborations, and faculty development. How did these programs start? How do they function? Are there drawbacks to these models? How replicable are they?<br><blockquote><strong><em>Karla McCain</em></strong>, Provost, Blackburn College<br><strong><em>Elaine Meyer-Lee</em></strong>, Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs, Goucher College<br><strong><em>Wendy Sherman Heckler</em></strong>, Provost and Senior Vice President, Otterbein University<br>Chair: <strong><em>Jennifer Glowienka</em></strong>, Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs, Carroll College<br></blockquote><br><h3>Inclusive Pedagogy/Inclusive Teaching</h3>As student populations become more diverse and campus leaders become more attentive to long neglected inequities, effective institutions are finding ways to make learner experience more equitable. Panelists will discuss the forms that inclusive pedagogy has taken on their campuses. What type of training do faculty receive? Are they rewarded for doing it right? What is the level of adoption on campuses? What challenges have proponents of this type of teaching faced?<br><blockquote><strong><em>Tracy S. Parkinson</em></strong>, Executive Vice President and Provost, Mars Hill University <br><strong><em>A. Gillian Stewart-Wells</em></strong>, Provost and Chief Academic Officer, Judson University<br>Chair: <strong><em>DeBrenna Agbenyiga</em></strong>, Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs, Stonehill College<br></blockquote><br><h3>Integrating Planning and Budgeting to Enhance Equitable Student Outcomes </h3>As more institutions prioritize access, retention, and completion, there is a need to identify how institutions can strategically finance equitable student outcomes. This session will explore ways to reconsider campus planning and budgeting processes with a DEI lens, as well as how to build in strategies that prioritize equitable solutions. Panelists will share a potential framework to analyze the ROI linked to equity-based activities to ensure they are sustained and measured.<br><blockquote><strong><em>Jim Hundrieser</em></strong>, Vice President, Consulting and Business Development, NACUBO<br><strong><em>George Stiell</em></strong>, Senior Vice President for Business, Finance, and Strategic Retention, Wiley College<br>Chair: <strong><em>Joe Harnisch</em></strong>, Chief Financial Officer, Midland University<br></blockquote><br><h3>Retire Inequality: Creating Financial Wellness for All</h3>Benefit plans that focus solely on the needs of the majority can exacerbate existing inequalities and wealth gaps, leaving many employees unprepared for retirement and feeling left out. Recognizing this, progressive employers are taking a more nuanced approach to benefit plan design, one that accounts for diverse individual needs—based on life stages, financial situations, and personal preferences—and builds financial wellness for ALL employees. In this session, we will discuss what higher education leaders are doing to make their benefits more equitable and inclusive, and more attractive in a highly competitive marketplace for talent.<br><blockquote><strong><em>Diane Short</em></strong>, Managing Director, Partner Market Leader, TIAA<br><strong><em>Jenna Templeton</em></strong>, Vice President for Academic Affairs, Chatham University<br>Chair: <strong><em>Jamie Summerlin</em></strong>, Senior Director, Strategic Client Engagement, TIAA</blockquote>

In other words, it often involves prioritization at some level. The institutions represented on this panel have gone through this process; some are in the recovery stage, while others are evaluating the impact of their process. The panel presents an opportunity to see models of how academic programming can be successfully implemented through collaboration between various relevant campus constituencies.<br><blockquote><strong><em>Mark Brodl</em></strong>, Provost and Dean of the Faculty, Illinois Wesleyan University<br><strong><em>DonnaJean Fredeen</em></strong>, Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs, Rider University<br><strong><em>Richard Ice</em></strong>, Provost, College of Saint Benedict/Saint John's University<br>Chair: <strong><em>Karlyn Crowley</em></strong>, Provost, Ohio Wesleyan University<br></blockquote></blockquote><br>Follow-up sessions for the <strong>Collegiate Mental Health in the Past Decade: Recent Trends, the Impact of COVID-19, and Next Steps</strong> workshop:<blockquote><h3>Case Studies in Effective Campus Wellness Initiatives</h3>This session will provide several examples of effective campus wellness initiatives.<br><blockquote><strong><em>Jamie McMinn</em></strong>, Vice President for Academic Affairs and Dean of the College, Westminster College (PA) <br><strong><em>Tom Sullivan</em></strong>, Associate Vice President for Student Affairs, St, Edward’s University (TX)<br>Chair: <strong><em>John S.

Some of these practices include undergraduate research, integrative learning, programs that connect directly to career preparation, and importantly, effective advising, which ensures that students are taking the right classes to prepare them for their chosen careers. This panel will showcase how two institutions have successfully navigated these processes.<br><blockquote><strong><em>Eric Boynton</em></strong>, Provost and Dean of the College, Beloit College<br><strong><em>Leslie Davidson</em></strong>, Vice President for Enrollment, Beloit College<br><strong><em>Susan Larson</em></strong>, Provost and Dean of the College, Concordia College (MN)<br><strong><em>Karl Stumo</em></strong>, Vice President for Enrollment and Marketing at Concordia College (MN)<br>Chair: <strong><em>Ellen Goldey</em></strong>, Vice President for Academic Affairs and Dean of the College, Centre College <br></blockquote></blockquote> <br>Follow-up session for the <strong>Using Data for Institutional Effectiveness</strong> workshop:<blockquote><h3>Making the Case with Data</h3>The 2022 CIC Member Engagement Survey revealed that presidents and provosts were very interested in having access to and using data to make strategic decisions. Over a third of the indicators in the CIC Key Indicators Tool (KIT) relate to faculty and instructional resources. Understanding these key indicators and their relationships to each other can help CAOs and CFOs maximize the benefit of current expenditures on instruction and provide guidance as to whether the current level of support is adequate to achieve institutional mission. This session will have three parts: an explanation of the relevant key indicators; the use of a case study to show how the indicators can be used to frame discussions of instructional support; and a discussion of the situation on your own campus. Parts two and three will involve small group discussions in a workshop format. Questions and discussion are welcome about how institutions can use this and other data to make the case for institutional needs, priorities, and mission.<br><blockquote><strong><em>Jason Rivera</em></strong>, Director of Strategic Research, CIC<br><strong><em>Michael Williams</em></strong>, Senior Advisor for Institutional Effectiveness and Research, CIC<br>Chair: <strong><em>Allen Omoto</em></strong>, Vice President for Academic Affairs and Dean of the Faculty, Pitzer College</blockquote></blockquote>
