Institute 2

Institute on College Financials

On April 8, Colleges of the Fenway hosted the inaugural Institute On College Financials. Made possible by a grant from the Davis Foundation, 50 faculty and staff members participated in the day-long program that provided a big picture view of the economics of higher education and economic challenges. One goal of the institute is for faculty and staff to take a more active and informed role in their colleges’ governance and strategic planning.

Rich Doherty, President of AICUM, served as the keynote, providing an presentation on “The Economics of Higher Education”.  Additional presentations included “The Tuition Driven Schools’ Dilemma” and “Financial Models for Higher Education Institutions”.
