Despite the slow but steady U.S. economic growth, some academic institutions are facing difficult financial decisions. Higher education is at a crossroads of traditional educational and economic models as well as disruptive technologies and innovations. A BKD National Higher Education Group initiative explored four critical areas facing colleges and universities:  leadership, labor costs, external environment and resources. Join us to learn more about these areas and practical suggestions for boards and top management as they navigate the year ahead.
