Michael BrophyJoin us for a conversation with Michael Brophy, the new president of Hilbert College and an alumnus of the Department of Educational Leadership and Policy Analysis, about challenges facing private colleges in the coming decade.

Our discussion will ​focus on the current and future state of private, nonprofit higher education, including what educational leaders will need to learn and embrace over the next decade​ in order for their institutions to continue to survive and thrive.

Specific questions we will consider include:
  • What factors have contributed to our current state, and what are likely to emerge?
  • What strategies are private colleges and universities considering as part of their work to sustain their core missions?
  • How will leaders consider competency​-based education, mergers, new student markets, third-party solutions and partnerships, ​board dynamics, and capacity building?

This event is hosted by the Wisconsin Center for the Advancement of Postsecondary Education (WISCAPE).

Light refreshments will be served.
