About the Workshop

Talking about Private Colleges logoCIC launched a series of seven Talking about Private Colleges: Busting the Myths workshops in September 2019, three of which were completed prior to the COVID-19 pandemic. The workshops were designed to provide participants with accurate data and persuasive arguments about the value and impact of private colleges and universities—and prepare them to influence community opinion through informal conversations with friends, neighbors, elected officials, and local businesspeople. CIC member institutions were invited to send teams of 5–7 people, selected by the president, to a workshop in regional proximity. View more information about the workshop series.

Institutional teams typically included:

  • The president;
  • At least one trustee who is an eager ambassador for the institution (if possible);
  • At least one faculty member—preferably two—who is influential both on campus and in the local community; and
  • At least one member of the senior administration or staff who frequently interacts with the non-academic public.

This free workshop series has been supported by the Henry Luce Foundation, EAB, Sage Scholars Inc., and Sodexo, as a service to CIC member institutions.

This workshop has already taken place. In-person workshops will resume in fall 2021.
