1:29:21 minutes
May 2020

About This Webinar

During this Q&A webinar, partners at Husch Blackwell address how higher education institutions can plan for and implement academic program changes driven by economic pressures – ranging from reducing or eliminating specific majors or programs to institutional closures. These pressures have or will become especially acute for many institutions due to the COVID-19 crisis.

The webinar focuses on five publications: A Guide to Manage Risks Associated With Program Change and four checklists focusing on particular aspects of program change – General Planning, Program Reduction or Discontinuance, Change of Institutional Control, and Institutional Closure.

The webinar should be of interest to:

  • Governing Board members
  • Chancellors or Presidents
  • Chief Financial Officers
  • Other administrators involved in planning or implementing academic program changes
  • Legal counsel
  • Risk Managers
  • Human Resources and Student Affairs officials
  • Employees involved in communicating about program changes, such as crisis communication and public relations teams

Moderated by Hillary Pettegrew, Senior Risk Management Counsel, United Educators
