Higher Ed Advisor: insights from a university president on collegiate athletic programs

Welcome to Higher Ed Advisor, the Baker Tilly podcast series where we speak with higher education industry leaders from across the firm about practical and proactive guidance to help colleges and universities protect and enhance their value.

We continue our athletics-themed podcast series with an episode featuring Doug Lee, president of Waynesburg University. In this podcast, we discuss how collegiate athletic programs are being affected by the current fiscal challenges facing many colleges and universities, including the COVID-19 pandemic, and how Waynesburg's sports teams are a defining part of the university's culture.

Doug shares insights from his role as past chair and current member of the Presidents’ Athletic Conference (PAC), explains the process of strategically assessing Waynesburg’s programs to ensure mission alignment and student engagement, and emphasizes the top priority of keeping student athletes – and all students – safe from COVID-19 on campus, including the specific measures the university has taken to protect students, faculty and staff.
