A Comprehensive Approach to Student Recruitment and Retention and Alumni Engagement
The early engagement of students and young alumni is one of the most important ways to maximize both student success and lifetime giving among alumni. This session will explore the connections between young alumni and major giving and how student recruitment strategies affect student retention and ultimately young alumni donor behavior. How are annual giving and early engagement with the institution correlated? What types of engagement of young alumni increase an institution’s donor base and build a sustainable pipeline for major gifts? How do young alumni prefer to stay in touch with their alma mater? The panelists will discuss effective practices and examples of successful fundraising strategies.

Developing Information Fluency Skills throughout the Undergraduate Experience
Students entering college have little experience with scholarly research. They are unfamiliar with discipline-based resources and are challenged to develop manageable research questions. How can the development of research skills be intensely integrated into the curriculum? Two college library directors who have been leaders of information fluency projects for faculty members and involved in CIC projects will share their approaches and lessons learned.

The CAO and the CAdO: Building a Team to Leverage the President’s Time
Chief academic and chief advancement officers should foster good working relations between themselves and their teams, but making this happen requires deliberate actions. What are some of the opportunities for these senior officers to learn about each other’s job responsibilities? How does a fruitful conversation begin? What are the best ways for them as a team to make the most of the president’s time, both on and off campus, especially when working with alumni and donors and engaged in strategic planning?

The College Presidency: Why and How?
Chief academic and chief advancement officers are viable candidates for college presidencies but are sometimes reluctant to engage in a search process. In this session, a former president and current higher education consultant will focus on the reasons why senior administrators should seek to become presidents, emphasizing the contributions they can make to higher education and society as presidents and the pleasure and satisfaction they can derive from leading a college. The other panelists, two experienced search consultants, will discuss how chief academic and chief advancement officers should position themselves for consideration as presidents. All three presenters will offer advice about the search process itself.

Engaging the Faculty in Fundraising
Engaging faculty members in fundraising efforts can be highly effective and highly challenging. Faculty members often have fascinating stories to tell about their work with students but need help framing those stories in ways that are compelling to donors. What are informal rules and procedures that help keep faculty members focused on the project and on institutional priorities—and that can facilitate successful interactions with donors? What communication process among faculty members, the CAO, the CAdO, and the advancement staff works? What should happen when a faculty member or a school dean is directly approached by a prospective donor about a gift?

It’s All about the Team
Nothing has greater impact on institutional success than the senior campus leaders working together as a team. Too often, however, fiefdoms, silos, individual agendas, and competing interests undermine team success. This session will review the dynamics of a successful senior team and present strategies to heighten collaboration, increase communication, develop shared goals, and strengthen group and individual accountability.

The Provost’s Handbook
In the first chapter of their new book, The Provost’s Handbook (2015), James Martin and James Samels define five challenges currently facing academic leaders: difference in the speed of prospective student and academic decision making; expansion of administrative bureaucracies that reduce faculty engagement in and commitment to academic governance; justification of tuition increases to a variety of constituents; restricted budgets; and conflicting expectations of academic leadership among boards of trustees, presidents, cabinet colleagues, and faculty members. The authors will be joined by a provost who contributed to the book to discuss these and other challenges and successes faced by CAOs.

The Senior Year Experience: Integration, Reflection, Closure, and Transition
A student’s transition from college senior to first-year graduate student or working professional can be as stressful as the transition from high school senior to first-year college student—but it also is full of potential for student development and growth. Colleges and universities should be intentional about developing programs that help students integrate the many aspects of their college experience, reflect on what they have learned and how it will inform future decisions, and prepare for life after college. What types of programs are effective in helping students fulfill the potential of the senior year, launch confident graduates into the world, and simultaneously bind them to the institution as loyal alumni?

Encouraging Philanthropic Habits among Students and Young Alumni
A strong record of gifts to the institution from young alumni starts with a strong relationship with current students. Programs designed to bond students with the institution and encourage them to give back to their alma mater have to begin with the students’ first moments on campus and continue after graduation. Programs, communication, and technology should match the interests and needs of young alumni. Chief advancement officers from campuses that have had success developing philanthropic behavior among students and young alumni will share their strategies.

Federal and Foundation Grants, Sponsored Research, and Contracts: Divisions of Responsibility
Grants, sponsored research, and contracts can help colleges and universities fund innovative projects and programs that they otherwise could not afford. Administration of some external funding opportunities clearly belongs in academic affairs while administration of others clearly belongs in the advancement office, but some opportunities bridge the two divisions. How can the chief academic and chief advancement officer work together to build a culture of collaboration around external funding opportunities? What processes and procedures encourage collaborative efforts by staff and faculty members?

Teaching Interfaith Understanding: A Progress Report on the First Two Years
CIC and Interfaith Youth Core (IFYC) have led four cohorts of faculty members through multidisciplinary seminars on Teaching Interfaith Understanding. The goals of the ongoing seminar series are to strengthen the teaching of interfaith understanding through examination of substantial theoretical questions and exploration of the practical work of translating interfaith concepts into courses that have deep impact on students. How has faculty members’ participation in the seminars influenced interfaith efforts on their home campuses, both in curricular and co-curricular work? Are there particular areas of success or pitfalls that arise as the sensitive topics of religious identity and diversity are discussed in an academic community? What next steps can further advance interfaith understanding on campus?

Understanding the Legal Framework for Change
To respond to economic and social changes, independent colleges and universities are increasingly called upon to be nimble and flexible. This may require institutions to develop new programs, to close long-standing programs or campuses, or to end partnerships that are no longer viable. It also may require untraditional solutions to problems. Given the importance of upholding principles of shared governance and consensus building, however, rapid change is not the norm for most educational institutions. Building capacity for change into the institutional culture requires advanced planning to lay the groundwork before crises develop. Senior campus leaders must understand which laws have bearing on the use of innovative techniques and rapid changes. An experienced higher education attorney will lead this session.

Chair: Amy Wolfson, Vice President for Academic Affairs, Loyola University Maryland
Telling the Institutional Story
Ever since Burton Clark’s pioneering work on institutional “saga,” storytelling has been recognized as the most effective mechanism for connecting colleges and universities with prospective students, retaining students, engaging alumni and donors, and bonding faculty and staff members to the institution. Effective stories are authentic accounts of the history, mission, and experience of the college or university that both resonate with others and articulate the institutional experience in memorable ways. Often, however, institutions have multiple and contested stories that must be effectively fused for a single compelling institutional narrative to emerge. When the authentic institutional story is told effectively, the audience will respond accordingly.

The CAO and the CAdO: Working Together to Build Meaningful Engagement with the Board of Trustees
How valuable is your board and its committees to the work you do? Are board members strategic partners or micromanagers? Are trustees informed about and engaged in fundraising activities? How can board members best support the academic program without meddling? What can the chief academic and chief advancement officer do to enhance appropriate board engagement, especially in committee work, so that all trustees become strategic assets?

What Do Those Numbers Really Mean? A Primer on Financial Ratios Using CIC’s FIT and KIT
Financial health is critical for any institution. Financial strength has different dimensions, and these dimensions can be measured by specific financial ratios. Chief academic and chief advancement officers need a basic understanding of fundamental financial ratios—the data used, the calculations made, the meaning of the resulting numbers, and how the information can be used. This session is designed for CAOs and CAdOs who want to understand the financial ratios used in CIC’s FIT and KIT annual customized benchmarking reports, which are prepared free of charge for all institutional member campuses, and the significance of the ratios for their institutions.

Campaign Planning and Priorities
Developing a campaign plan should be a collaborative process that matches institutional goals and strategic plans with fundraising priorities. How can the chief advancement and the chief academic officer work collaboratively to plan a campaign? How are the academic goals of the institution balanced with goals of other college divisions? How are priorities for fundraising set? Senior officers who have collaborated on successful campaigns will lead this discussion.

Community Development Partnerships
Many colleges and universities partner with local government and community organizations to support regional economic development and improve neighborhoods. Such partnerships also benefit the educational institution and its students and faculty members by offering opportunities for project-based learning, community-based research, internships, and other forms of experiential learning. Chief officers from institutions that are deeply engaged with their communities will discuss how to start a cooperative initiative, who to involve, and how others might take advantage of developing partnerships to benefit their campus and community.

CIC Consortium for Online Humanities Instruction
CIC’s Andrew W. Mellon Foundation-supported project to assess the effectiveness of online teaching in upper-level humanities courses at liberal arts colleges explores how online humanities instruction can improve student learning outcomes; tests whether smaller, independent liberal arts institutions can make more effective use of instructional resources and reduce costs with shared online courses; and provides opportunities to build capacity for online humanities instruction. Twenty campus teams developed online courses that were offered in spring 2015 on home campuses and will be offered to the consortium in spring 2016. Ithaka S+R has collected data on student outcomes, student and faculty member experiences, and instructional costs. A preliminary analysis of the data and lessons learned from the first round of course offerings will be presented.

State Authorization of Distance Education
State authorization of distance education is one of the federal compliance requirements under the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008. The original goal was to ensure that states protect citizens from consumer fraud in the online learning market and that colleges and universities are licensed and chartered by the states in which they operate and from which they recruit students. How do CAOs manage and apply for authorization from the 77 state-level agencies that oversee out-of-state institutions of higher education? What is the State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA), and how does it help CAOs navigate the turbulent waters of state authorization of distance education? The goals of this session are to familiarize CAOs with their legal obligations, explain the benefits of SARA participation, and present an update on state authorization legislation and discussions at the state and federal levels.

The Importance of the First Year of College
Students, faculty members, curricula, and strategic plans often focus on the junior and senior years of the college experience, when the major is the student’s primary focus, but the first year is often the most important in a college student’s life. For many reasons, including the vulnerability of first-year students to attrition and the constraining requirements of some pre-professional programs, the best faculty members should teach first-year students, and support programs should be available for these students. In this session Roger Martin, retired president of Randolph-Macon College, former development officer, and author of Off to College: A Guide for Parents (2015), together with an experienced chief academic officer and chief advancement officer, will explore why the first year merits more attention from provosts, deans, and advancement officers.
