Board member role in fiscal resiliency for colleges and universities

Higher Ed Advisor: the board’s role in achieving fiscal resiliency

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.

The higher education industry is experiencing tremendous change, and with change, comes challenges and risk. Board members serve as a catalyst for action and play a significant role in addressing the challenges and contributing to the strategic decision making needed to be fiscally resilient in the face of formidable change.

What makes a good board member? What should board members be most concerned about today, and why? How do board members drive change? What are the critical success factors to achieving fiscal resiliency? In this episode, our higher education specialists answer these questions and discuss the board involvement required to make strategic decisions to remain a resilient institution during these uncertain times.
