Inside Higher Ed's editor and a diverse panel of campus financial leaders will discuss the results of the publication’s annual survey of campus chief business officers. They’ll explore how CBOs are viewing their campuses’ mid- and long-term financial health, the likelihood of college closures and mergers, and the impact of a possible economic downturn, among other topics.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand what other college and university business officers from different sectors see as their institutions’ major financial issues and the strategies they’ve used to address them
  • Identify trends and what business officers can do to ensure positive long-term outcomes for their campus
  • Discuss what has and has not worked on campuses and changing campus strategies
