Rank #1: Synario Series Part 1: The Value of Forecasting in the Face of Uncertainty

Podcast cover
Read more

Unstable future revenues. Ballooning costs. Shifting demographics. For some, the challenges facing our institutions are no longer posing questions about what our schools will look like in the future, but whether our schools have a future at all. Even the most fortunate are concerned that there won’t be sufficient resources to sustain excellence — much less fund new ambitions.

This week on NACUBO In Brief, we bring you part one of a four-part series dissecting one of higher education’s biggest challenges: financial modeling and forecasting in the face of great uncertainty.

NACUBO’s senior director of accounting policy Sue Menditto invites two experts in for the conversation; Larry Goldstein, President of Campus Strategies and author of College and University Budgeting, and Brett Matteo, managing director of The PFM Group and president of Synario software (formerly known as Whitebirch).

Rank #2: Futurist Bryan Alexander on Trends, Innovation, and Hope for Higher Ed of Tomorrow

Podcast cover
Read more

The demographic landscape is evolving, and in so doing, providing the richest opportunity that higher education has had in decades, according to futurist, researcher, and writer Bryan Alexander. These demographic trends, the aging of the student body, the demands of technology in and out of the classroom, all function to shake the worldview of those in a position to lead today’s institutions.

This week, Alexander offers a rich landscape to tread as we navigate our own future as CBOs. The silver lining? Thanks to science fiction, social media, and a generation of students ready to get to work, there is real innovation taking place in many sectors of higher ed, as long as we’re willing and able to embrace it!

Rank #7: The Public-Private Partnership builds steam at Syracuse

Podcast cover
Read more

Syracuse University SVP and CFO Amir Rahnamay-Azar knows a thing or two about steam. His university’s steam generator has been providing power and more for decades across the university. When it came time for a major retrofit, it came time to revisit facilities that were core to the operation of the institution. As he says, “I need steam, not a steam generator.” 

So they turned to a Public-Private Partnership, a relationship that allows the university to address their power generation requirements and work with a private organization to manage the infrastructure. Today on NACUBO In Brief, Rahnamay-Azar joins NACUBO’s Megan Schneider to share the journey toward the PPP at Syracuse.

Rank #9: Protecting student privacy and information security in a federal student data system

Podcast cover
Read more

Joanna Gramma is a senior consultant at Vantage Technology Consulting Group and she joins NACUBO’s Megan Schneider, senior director of government affairs, to take on a subject at the intersection of technology and higher education: centralizing a new set of higher education student and institution data at the federal level. Many institutions already make this sort of data public on their own websites; but advocates for a new system argue that a centralized data source would offer a useful tool for parents and students to evaluate all of their different educational options.

However, if such a potentially large set of centralized data were collected, does the federal government have both the IT infrastructure and regulatory framework necessary to protect such information? Gramma helps us to understand the current information security landscape and points out some potential areas for further research whether you’re an IT specialist, administrator, or parent.

Shared Services encompasses the web of possible partnerships between departments, divisions, and even across institutions that share resources to improve efficiency and decrease costs, and relieve pressure on tuition.

Rank #17: Social Sentinal's Gary Margolis Helps Students, Schools Stay Safe Online

Podcast cover
Read more

Gary Margolis is a retired university police chief. Over his decades in campus public safety, he has watched as the boom in online activity and connections with social tools has opened new pathways for aggression between students. His role, and the role of campus public safety, has changed dramatically as a result.

Today, Margolis serves as president and CEO of Social Sentinel. His company has built a product designed to listen for the language of self-harm and aggression online, taking cues from marketing sentiment analysis and repurposing it for something new: protecting students and their institutions from harm.

This week on NACUBO In Brief, Margolis shares his own journey from chief to CEO and looks at how campus safety needs have evolved from blue lights to social media threat alerts. “Administrators need to be aware of the current behavior of their students,” says Margolis, “and understand the tools in place to protect them.”
