​​​Higher education leaders will not be able to solve for every economic, political, social, or technological variable reshaping the industry. But by rooting transformation in tangible changes to the management approaches, processes, and structures that have long defined their institutions, leaders will prepare their teams to educate and impact as many students as possibleregardless of what the future holds.

Together the American Council on Education (ACE), the Georgia Institute of Technology, and Huron engaged with 495 leaders at four-year, nonprofit colleges and universities to understand areas of opportunity and concern and how they are preparing for future change.

Join leaders from ACE, the Georgia Institute of Technology, and Huron for a webinar exploring the research findings, and to discuss how leaders can position their institutions for meaningful change by building upon four key dimensions of transformation readiness:

  • Develop collaborative leaders who share accountability for strategic growth and manage performance more deliberately.
  • Plan differently and ask questions with both immediate, short-term and visionary, long-term perspectives.
  • Operate in more connected ways through shared data and technology that enable stronger performance management.
  • Establish innovation centers to develop and launch offerings for new student populations, from first-generation learners to corporate employees and adults pursuing career shifts.
This event will take place online. Participation is complementary, but registration is required.
