With an estimated $16 Billion in additional annual revenue from College Sports, leaders need to prioritize financial solutions to fulfill the recently adopted NCAA holistic model and to more fully support college athletes’ education, health, safety, well-being, and equity.
In this article, we will explore the shift in public opinion regarding higher education, its challenges, and what higher ed needs to do to turn this perception around and ensure its sustainability.
A lot has been happening up on The Hill that affects higher education. In this Washington Update podcast, Dr. Drumm McNaughton catches up on the latest news with Tom Netting, president of TEN Government Strategies, who advocates before Congress, federal agencies, and state governments on behalf of private institutions of higher education and post-secondary education companies.
In this podcast, Dr. Drumm McNaughton talks with Jeff Scheuer about what role the liberal arts should play in relation to STEM and vocational education, how liberal arts help graduates become better citizens, what courses fall within the jurisdiction of the liberal arts, and why the liberal arts are and should remain engrained in the American identity.
Higher ed can be better positioned to meet, enroll, retain, and help future generations of students successfully maneuver the ever-changing business world by embracing micro-credentials appropriately and programmatically.
Micro-credentials are also money-making opportunities for colleges and universities that can help address deficits and fund other pursuits.
In this episode, Dr.s McNaughton and Ingle discuss Framework Leadership, aligning an institution for sustained growth, appreciative inquiry, Sigmoid Curves, SEU’s approach to avoiding organizational decline, and how Southeastern University saved itself from bankruptcy.
Rural-serving institutions (RSIs) face many more unique challenges than most urban schools and persist, comprising more than 25% of all U.S. colleges and universities. Although inherently different, every higher ed institution can learn from the innovative best practices RSIs have been forced to adopt to help positively impact their enrollment and more.
To understand what RSIs can teach higher ed as a whole, Dr. Drumm McNaughton discusses the misconceptions and essential roles these institutions have in their communities with Executive Director Dr. Andrew Koricich of the Alliance for Research on Regional Colleges, a research collaborative and resource hub that has completed the insurmountable task of defining what rural-serving institutions are.
Higher education institutions are facing numerous challenges as enrollment numbers continue to decline, forcing many campuses to drop majors, merge with other institutions or reset their tuition. Even larger public universities are beginning to act more like private institutions by price-matching the competition. To stay afloat, these schools are also looking to embrace nontraditional models like lifelong learning and are focusing on retaining students by outsourcing mental health services.
Dr. Drumm McNaughton, CEO and Higher Education Consultant at The Change Leader and Deb Maue, Senior Vice President for Enrollment and Marketing at Aurora University, discuss what has happened in 2022 and predict trends in higher education for 2023.
