How have you created positive change in your institution? What’s next for higher education? We want your proposal for a session on integrated planning to be presented at our 2018 conference.
What is Integrated Planning?
Integrated planning is a sustainable approach to planning that builds relationships, aligns the organization, and emphasizes preparedness for change.
Integrated planning engages all sectors of the academy—academic affairs, student affairs, business and finance, campus planning, information technology, communications, and development. It involves all stakeholders—faculty, students, staff, alumni, and external partners.
What makes a great proposal?
Great proposals focus on one of two things: solutions or foresight.
Solutions: Help attendees solve a pressing problem.
Foresight: Explore innovative new ideas, analyze trends, and prepare attendees for the future.
All great proposals have the following:
Takeaways: Give attendees next actions, tips, tricks, tools, processes, etc., that can be applied immediately.
Engagement: Engage attendees with the content and with each other in meaningful ways.
