SCUP 2015 Southern Symposium:
Carolinas Higher Education Sees Dynamic Growth
May 19, 2015 | Presbyterian College | Clinton, SC
Throughout the Carolinas, higher education institutions are forging new, dynamic alliances in response to changing needs and resources. Public-private partnerships, strategic alliances between two-year and four-year institutions, and strong relationships with local governments and business are just a few of the ways our institutions are successfully navigating change in an increasingly competitive, demanding environment.
Hosted by Presbyterian College, this symposium will examine these alliances and how they are changing the higher education landscape. From large universities to small community and technical colleges, panelists will discuss their experiences, the challenges and the successes they have found with alternative partnerships. Using specific, proven examples, they will touch on key issues, exploring the dynamic shift in traditional boundaries. We will learn how these institutions are responding to student demand for flexibility, quality and cost-effectiveness, in a way that benefits all parties while creating solid models for growth. We will also hear how our host institution, Presbyterian College, has used alliances like these to implement their master plan, and how they have responded to unexpected, dramatic changes on campus along the way.
Evaluate, through specific case studies, private-public partnerships and the benefits to both smaller colleges and large universities.
Understand the dynamics and logistics behind alliances between two-year and four-year higher education institutions.
Discuss ways in which campuses respond to sometimes unpredictable needs through reaching out to potential community partners.
Learn how community and technical colleges are forging an array of partnerships to both serve their communities and fund their programs and infrastructure.
