"The Healing Power of Humor"
Monday, October 26
6:00 PM–7:00 PM
Stuart Robertshaw is the president and CEO of the National Association for the Humor Impaired. The association has received national attention from the press in over 144 newspapers (including the Wall Street Journal), 180 radio stations and has been featured in magazines such as Family Circle and Mature Outlook.

The World is Flat: Implications for Higher Education Planners and Leaders
Dr. Lingenfelter will reference Tom Friedman’s best selling book, “The World is Flat,” and various publications of Peter Drucker addressing the “knowledge society” to identify profound economic implications for every country, for the sustainability and quality of human life on the planet, and for higher education.
He will share three observations affecting higher education in the future: the re-alignment of national economies, the imperative for mass higher education, and the challenge to the world ecosystem.
A fourth topic is the impact of the economic stimulus bill on education. Will it create lasting value, a foundation for prosperity in the future? Or is it merely a temporary fix until we reassess our priorities and develop long-range strategies to better use the resources we already have?
"A crisis is a terrible thing to waste."
-Paul Romer, Stanford economist
We’ve all heard it before. Change is the one constant we can count on. Nothing ever stays the same. Change is inevitable. In reality, change is opportunistic. Whether it is with staff alignments, technology investment, internal process streamlining or major restructuring, change brings opportunity.
As our nation and the world economies swiftly redesign themselves, we find new challenges – new changes -- within the college and university arena. These changes include increased competition for school-to-school and state-to-state stimulus funding, a reduction in local financial resources leading to a re-ordering of priorities, recognition of the cause and effect of world codependency, and especially, a renewed commitment to preserve and restore those things we value and cherish - our legacy to future generations.
This is the time for reflection, to sharpen our tools and create pathways for new initiatives beginning with not only knowing where you’ve been, but in knowing where you want to be. What you do now, when budgets are tight but student enrollment is not, will impact your “place in the market” for years to come.
We will look at what specific opportunities have been created in the new economy, such as:
It is easy to look at the current economy and say “why me?” At this conference, we will be showcasing the folks who said “why not!” and have spent this last year advancing their causes in the face of these new opportunities.
Plan now to join your regional colleagues at Indiana University and hear their stories.
