    Is Institutional Spending and Affordability Putting U.S. Higher Ed in Danger? A New ACTA Report Discussion

    46:32

    Podcast Summary Dr. Drumm McNaughton interviews Dr. Michael B. Poliakoff, president of the American Council of Trustees and Alumni (ACTA), and Dr. Armand Alacbay, ACTA’s vice president of trustee and government affairs, about the organization’s new report, “The Cost of Excess,” which analyzes the reasons and impacts behind the continual rising cost of higher education. Podcast Highlights Higher education trustees need to ask probing questions and request meaningful data to help institutions make good decisions that are central to their mission of graduating students. For example, ACTA’s report found no statistical correlation between student services and improved graduation rates. This is important because institutions spent $112 billion in this student services alone during the timeframe studied. The report also found that the percent of increased instructional spending at public institutions was twice as effective in improving graduation rates as increasing administrative spending.

    How to Build Great Leaders in Higher Education

    35:18

    Podcast Summary Dr. Drumm McNaughton interviews Dr. Roger Hughes, President at Doane University, about the knowledge, qualities and skills that higher education leaders need to have. Podcast Highlights Higher education leaders can come from a variety of backgrounds, including coaching. Leadership knowledge and skills can be transferred between different types of jobs. It’s important to grow leaders. This can happen through creating an environment where the leadership team learns principle-based leadership that reflects the president’s values. Leaders can be driven by ego or principles. The former makes leaders feel like they are indispensable; however, this philosophy can make it different for decisions to be made when the leader is not on campus. The principle-based leadership model not only solves this issue, but also helps grow a cadre of leaders at different levels of the organization.

    Innovating the Higher Ed Business Model

    36:10

    Podcast Summary Dr. Drumm McNaughton interviews Dr. Melik Khoury, president of Unity College, about the institution’s out-of-the-box thinking that is creating a new business model for higher education. Podcast Highlights Higher education is built on a traditional system that was developed by elite institutions. However, the model isn’t sustainable for educating a broader group of students. Colleges and universities should look at their missions and their policies to see if these are still valid—and whether they may be holding the institution back in some ways. Innovation doesn’t need to look the same across the institution’s campus. Different departments can focus on building innovative programs that meet the specific needs of a group of students. Through taking ownership of these programs, leadership gets built throughout the institution.

    A New Higher Ed Business Model Targets Value Proposition

    41:10

    Podcast Summary Dr. Drumm McNaughton interviews Jaime Casap, a consultant and Google’s former education evangelist, about how higher education needs to create a new model that will help students embrace lifelong learning and succeed in the emerging economy. Podcast Highlights Students who come from low-socioeconomic circumstances, immigrant families or are the first in their family to attend college often don’t have a good understanding of the educational opportunities that are available to them. A new model of education should help students define who they are and what they’re passionate about, and then expose them to different disciplines and experts from around the world. Students and higher education institutions both need to embrace the concept of lifelong learning. Therefore, the finite four-year education should no longer be the norm. Instead, educational opportunities should be created to meet the person’s various needs throughout both a career and life.

    Higher Ed Innovation Brought on by the Pandemic

    41:43

    Podcast Summary Dr. Drumm McNaughton interviews Dr. Kim Hadley, CFO at John Brown University, about lessons from pandemic that can help transform higher ed institutions. Podcast Highlights Developing collaborations with other higher education institutions can help a university develop new programs without assuming significant fixed costs. Innovative technology, such as owl cameras, can solve immediate issues caused by the pandemic, but also can have long-term benefits. The pandemic underscores the need for risk planning and education about the institution’s finances. While these scenarios may not come to pass, this process does help higher education leaders and boards of trustees build their own and institutional capacity, as well as trust among institutional stakeholders To read the full show notes, visit https://changinghighered.com/higher-ed-innovation-pandemic/ Resources Dr. Drumm McNaughton provides governance consulting; strategic planning, implementation, and change management consulting, and accreditation consulting for higher ed institutions.

    The Wisdom of a Tuition Reset at St. John's College

    35:12

    Podcast Summary Dr. Drumm McNaughton interviews Dr. Mark Roosevelt, president of St. John’s College, about the college’s decision to do a tuition reset. Podcast Highlights In general, the higher education industry wants to communicate that it has something valuable to offer. However, setting the price tag to be beyond the means of almost every family that wants to enroll a student sends the wrong message. Consider starting a philanthropic campaign with alumni support. This approach taps into alumni’s understanding that college affordability is a problem for their families. They often want to contribute to defray the costs. Have a strategic communication plan that transparently and sincerely communicates the tuition reset to recent graduates, current students, and prospective students. Each will have a different take and it’s important to have authentic conversations with them about why decisions have been made.

    Prepare for Changes in Higher Ed Accreditation

    37:20

    Podcast Summary Dr. Drumm McNaughton interviews Dr. Cynthia Jackson-Hammond, CEO of the Council for Higher Education Accreditation, about accreditation’s role as higher education institutions continue to institute change in response to economic and societal turbulence. Podcast Highlights CHEA is a non-governmental organization that is focused on academic quality, quality assurance, transparency to the public, and ensuring that institutions and their programs are following their mission. Even with the rise in OPMs, colleges and universities are ultimately responsible for providing guidance in the curriculum design, which is part of the university’s role of self-regulating of its programs. Diversity, equity, and inclusion continue to be important in higher education, but accreditors are looking for evidence of DEI, such as faculty inclusion, retraining of faculty in teaching methods, or campus enrollment practices.

    Grow Your Institution with Online Student Enrollment

    30:12

    Podcast Summary Dr. Drumm McNaughton interviews Tony Huffman, President and Founder of Perdia Education, about how technology is evolving to help higher education identify, recruit, enroll and serve adult students. Podcast Highlights With the enrollment cliff rapidly approaching, adult students need to increasingly become the focal point of higher education recruitment efforts. These students need a different approach to education than traditional students. Technology is important in not only providing online classes, but also in recruiting and enrolling adult students. These students want to be able to access information when and how they want to in their busy lives. Many of higher education’s programs and enrollment strategies were developed 25 years ago so they were designed to serve a different generation of students. It’s important for higher education to take the time and invest the resources in updating these components.
