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.
From divestment to investment, mergers and acquisitions, partnerships, and pursuits for students, faculty, staff, space, and dollars, institutions are forced to get creative to address age old challenges of Town Gown Relationships, the persistent rising cost of higher education, and emerging trends in learning.
Boston and neighboring Cambridge, home to over 35 colleges and universities, represent a rare opportunity to study the unique cultural, professional, and social landscape that is inextricably woven into the fabric of these institutions. Possibilities and problems of every type abound in this hub of academia. Whether it is demographic change, enrollment and retention, declining state support, diversity, blending campus into community, or changing political landscapes, Boston often confronts and resolves these issues first.
However, these issues are not specific to Boston. Such challenges are evident on campuses across the region and reinforce the need for INTEGRATED PLANNING—an approach that considers holistically all the parties and entities which enable the delivery of the academic mission.
Share with us how your institutions, either within Boston or without, have addressed these realities to advance your academic mission within the framework of your own surrounding community. How have you found ways to survive, thrive, and find your institution’s own path? Your stories, studies, and solution-based learning programs will pave the way for a best in class conference.
