Senior-level business officers at institutions with enrollments of fewer than 4,000 FTE students often take on responsibilities beyond the traditional job description. Participate in a lively discussion, led by seasoned chief business officers, about pressing issues at small institutions, such as maximizing mission with limited resources, promoting growth in an increasingly competitive market, and ensuring fiscal health while safeguarding students and facilities.
