In the midst of post-COVID enrollment and financial troubles the University of Arkansas at Little Rock learned to leverage planning and accreditation to build community and resilience. This session will address the university's setbacks, challenges, opportunities, and solutions in launching a shoestring integrated planning process amidst multiple crises: retrenchment, restructuring, leadership changes, an accreditation visit, COVID, and new enterprise resource planning (ERP) software. Find out how your institution can apply out concrete, low-cost, real-life strategies for initial integrated planning initiatives as well as respond to common setbacks and pitfalls in a VUCA context.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Promote an institutional growth mindset to create community, trust, and resilience on your campus.
  2. Engage faculty and staff through professional development in finance, budget, and planning.
  3. Explain how to leverage regional accreditation criteria and planning to effect positive change and momentum.
  4. Identify low cost processes that can contribute to a culture of planning at your institution.
