Higher Ed Advisor: realigning strategy and footprint to achieve fiscal resilience

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.

Aligning programs, services, resources, campus locations and other fiscal drivers is crucial to managing strategic transformation across an institution’s enterprise and meeting student needs in a changed learning environment.

In this episode, our higher education specialists explain why now is the time to chart a path forward and realign strategy and footprint to ensure sustainable, long-term fiscal and mission resilience across institutional functions. Taking a systemic and intentional look at your institution is a key step towards implementing a fiscal resiliency framework and enacting change.
