Save the date: Workshop on the future of higher education scheduled for Nov. 20
The Office of the Provost extends an invitation to a workshop focusing on several areas of importance to the university.
For the second year, EAB — previously the Education Advisory Board — will provide a full-day presentation of peer-tested research and information that addresses higher education's most pressing issues. The agenda will be finalized in early November, but session topics include:
- Differentiating your value proposition amidst rising competition for undergraduate enrollment.
- Communicating to potential students the value of K-State as a research institution over other institutions.
- Turning passive interest into program enrollments.
- Achieving principled (not profitless) growth — new program planning and net-positive launches, institutional market responsiveness and true costs of programs.
- Aligning departmental values and services around institutional priorities.
The workshop will be Monday, Nov. 20, at the K-State Student Union. Attendees are welcome to stay for the entire workshop or attend only the topics which interest them most. There is no cost to attend.
A copy of the workshop schedule will be available in early November.
