Location: Baltimore Marriott Waterfront, Baltimore, MD

Nixon Peabody partner Michael Cooney will be participating in a panel discussion at the EACUBO 2019 Annual Meeting, “Launching into the Future; Powered by the Past” on Monday, October 14, in Baltimore.

Survive or Thrive: Succeeding in Today’s Evolving Higher Education Environment
October 14, 2019, 3:00–4:00 p.m.
The panel will focus on proactive strategies to help boards, presidents, and leadership teams assess financial and operating risks and develop realistic and actionable responses. Among other things, the panel will explore how a new financial health metric can provide college and university leadership teams with visibility into the relative strategic health of their institutions and enable action before regulatory pressures limit operational options. College participants will share how they are responding to the increased pressures in the higher education sector, how they are building on their institutions’ core strengths to not only survive but thrive, how they make difficult resource allocation decisions, and how they engage their boards to advance these challenging topics effectively.
