This session focuses on the unique financial challenges facing community colleges due to the pandemic. In addition to a brief overview of the range of financial challenges being experienced by the sector, two campus-based leaders will describe the reality at their respective institutions. The session will highlight the role integrated planning, aligned with resource management, plays in establishing financial stability that can support enhanced institutional effectiveness.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Develop your ability to lead and/or participate in discussions to examine the financial impacts of the pandemic on their campus.
  2. Apply information supporting the alignment of integrated planning with resource management to enable them to assess their institution's approach to these processes.
  3. Apply evidence that simply cutting expenses will not lead to institutional effectiveness.
  4. Assess whether your institution is in better, worse, or the same shape as your peer institutions.
