EACUBO’s 2019 Workshop will include concurrent sessions that are organized within the following four programmatic tracks to give the option of focusing on particular areas of interest or attending a variety of sessions from multiple tracks.
Attendees to these sessions will engage in discussions regarding innovative approaches and tools available to deal with current fiscal challenges facing higher education leaders. Discussion leaders will explore topics that will enhance the financial sustainability of the institution by increasing efficiency of operations and space utilization, promote behavioral change, avoid risks, encourage collaborative development of cost savings strategies, align strategic goals with fiscal resources, and promote strategic alliances.
Attendees to these sessions will learn and share ideas regarding practical issues facing today's business officer. Topics include analyzing current accounting and tax developments, and financial modeling.
EACUBO defines leadership more as a mindset rather than a role or title. Attendees to these sessions will learn how to foster an environment that promotes high performance on a personal, professional, and organizational level, and build skills that will help them understand and effectively deal with the multitude of challenges facing leaders in higher education. These sessions are intended to increase attendees' capacity to create opportunities and generate solutions.
Technology and Data
Colleges and universities are using data, technology, and specialized knowledge to answer questions, reveal institutional needs, or improve financial performance. Attendees to these sessions will learn and engage on timely topics impacting higher education, from big-picture trends to best practices to inform decisions that meet institutional goals.
