A recent Dear Colleague letter that addresses the Department of Education’s upcoming expansion of a third-party service regulation will likely impact nearly all higher ed institutions that contract with a vendor to use their services and programs. The original rule was designed to monitor contracted companies that provide colleges and universities with services to manage various aspects of Federal Student Aid.
In his latest podcast episode, Dr. Drumm McNaughton discusses the recent Dear Colleague letter and the upcoming regulation expansion with Michael Goldstein, Managing Director of Tyton Partners’ Center for Higher Education Transformation.
Successfully reinventing a college or university into a truly innovative school after cutting a significant portion of programs sounds near impossible. However, the experiences at National Louis University (NLU), a four-campus private institution in Chicago, proved that presidents and other decision-makers can turn around an institution without having the complete buy-in of faculty and staff.
In this episode of Changing Higher Ed podcast, Dr. Drumm McNaughton and Dr. John A. White, discuss changes in higher ed governance and governing boards, and strategies for aligning trustees with the CEO’s strategic mission and strategies. Their experience is both higher education and corporate; this is important as higher education governance is becoming more and more like that of corporate governance.
In this episode of Changing Higher Ed podcast, Dr. Drumm McNaughton, a leading expert on change management in higher education, and Dr. Ami Moyale, president of Afeka, a top engineering college in Israel, discuss the case study of Moya’s profound transformation of his institution’s culture to produce well-rounded engineers who are better prepared to meet the challenges of an ever-changing high tech workforce. Moya and McNaughton summarize Afeka’s successful implementation of an engineering perspective to identify problems, define solutions, implement solutions through a process of ongoing assessment and change, and leverage change for future growth and development.
In this episode of Changing Higher Ed podcast, Dr. Drumm McNaughton and Dr. Richard “Dick” Chait, two leading experts on governance and management in higher education, discuss how the governing structures of colleges and universities have changed over the years. Chait and McNaughton also break down the different challenges facing public and private institutions, the fundamental attributes of effective boards and individual trustees, and how the roles and responsibilities of boards and trustees continue to evolve to meet the challenges facing institutions of higher education.
Board evolution is happening in numerous ways (or at least it should be) and they must now be the catalyst for transformational change in Higher Education. Some of these changes have been hastened by the pandemic and some are a matter of social and technological transformation. The marketplace is demanding a Higher Ed upgrade, is your board evolving?
The fifth and last installment in our series explores how higher education can reflect the ever-changing landscape of society and industry to meet their expectations. At The Change Leader, we propose a culture of continuous board improvement and accountability as a way to avoid the detrimental impact of stagnant governance.
At the start of a new year, The Change Leader’s Drumm McNaughton and Aurora University Senior Vice President for Enrollment and Marketing Deb Maue, sit down to do their higher education 2021 year in review, including recapping Drumm’s 2021 predictions for higher education. Drumm then offers his Higher Education 2022 predictions on the major trends and issues that will arise in colleges and universities across the US.
In part 4 of the Embracing a New Model for Higher Ed Governance series, we’re diving into how board roles continue to shift, even as higher education’s focus evolves with the rapidly changing environment. These shifts bring pressure on the board to embrace their responsibilities for oversight as well as the opportunity to serve in a consultant capacity to the institution. These emerging roles are quickly becoming a requirement because of the rapidly changing external environment that is VUCA: volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous.
