Leveraging Software to Improve Academic Programs and Faculty Hiring

Abstract: Determining where to invest in terms of academic programming and staffing can oftentimes be difficult due to competing interests by academic programs as well as a lack of resources. This session will describe how one university sought to improve academic planning and resource allocation within their academic units, and the software solution they used to do it. We'll discuss the university's example and broader best practices for reviewing metrics in research, finances, benchmarking, and predictive modeling as well as staffing and resource allocation related to academic planning.

Improve Employee Engagement and Student Success Through Effective Leadership Practices

Abstract: This session will show how a leadership model allowed an online university to improve employee engagement and student success outcomes by implementing effective departmental leadership practices. A 2017 study indicated that students are more engaged when faculty and staff are engaged. We will discuss how leadership practices can improve engagement across five departments: academics, admissions, advising, business office, and financial aid. You will learn to apply this leadership model at your institution to engage faculty and staff so that students will be more engaged as well.

Data-Informed Faculty Staffing and Budgeting by Programs

Abstract: Institutions usually spend more on providing courses for some academic programs than others. Stakeholders need to decide where and how to allocate resources to support instruction. This session introduces recent best practices using the Delaware Cost Study data to facilitate 1) the identification of under-resourced academic programs and 2) decision making in faculty budgeting and staffing. You will leave this session ready to re-evaluate the metrics you use to support instructional budgeting decisions so you can identify under-resourced programs and accurately understand faculty hiring needs.
