Planning Types: Academic Planning

Institutions will need to restructure at an unprecedented pace to achieve results vital for student success and institutional sustainability. Join us for an intimate discussion with Jamienne Studley, president of WASC Senior College and University Commission (WSCUC), former college president, and deputy undersecretary of the U.S. Department of Education (2013-2016). Synergy between strategic integrated planning and accreditation review can drive meaningful and efficient analysis in our institutions and become a catalyst for quality, continuous improvement for change, and pursuit of the results we want.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Identify and connect changes coming to higher education.
  2. Employ the critical notion of “why” as a link to help people across campus better understand the future and effectiveness of their programs and initiatives.
  3. Appreciate the evolution of accreditation and integrated planning as approaches that share emphasis on constant inquiry, evidence, adaptation, renewal and response to prepare and build an institution’s capacity for continuous change.
  4. Consider the concept of space as a magnet, and the future of the physical campus.
