Webinar to Explore How Institutions Can Prepare for and Promote Change
Published: October 11, 2019

Join experts and leaders from ACE, the Georgia Institute of Technology, and Huron for a webinar on Oct. 22 from 2-3:00 p.m. (ET) to hear findings from a recent survey of campus leaders on how they are responding to shifts in economic, political, social, and technological trends.

The survey of 495 leaders at four-year, nonprofit colleges and universities shows how institutions are adapting to the changes and what their concerns are for the future of higher education.

In addition to discussing the research findings, the webinar will explore how presidents, provosts and other leaders can lead their institutions through meaningful change by building upon four key dimensions of transformation readiness, including:

  • Collaborative, shared leadership
  • Planning that balances immediate, short-term and visionary, long-term perspectives
  • Data and technology-driven performance management
  • Dedicated groups to develop and launch offerings for new student populations

Participating in the webinar are:

  • Nelson Baker, dean of professional education and professor of civil and environmental engineering at the Georgia Institution of Technology
  • Rich DeMillo, executive director of the Center for 21st Century Universities (C21U) at the Georgia Institute of Technology
  • Philip Rogers, senior vice president of learning and engagement at ACE
  • Louis Soares, chief learning and innovation officer at ACE
  • Peter Stokes, managing director of higher education strategy and operations at Huron​
