It’s time to rewrite the higher ed narrative.

Discussion Topics & Objectives

As auxiliary services adapt in times of uncertainty, let’s let them shine as pillars of student development and success: The ultimate achievement of higher education. If you are a visionary on your campus that brings forward ideas for alternative revenue streams and ways to combat enrollment challenges, attend this year’s Senior Executive Summit to help further issues facing the auxiliary services industry as well as shape future content and thought leadership within the Association.

Discussion Topics include:

  • Talking through the biggest challenges facing both auxiliary services and higher education overall: how are the below challenges connected and what strategy, operating model or technology can you adopt to mitigate these challenges? How do we phase out traditional delivery models and work together to lead the way
  • Reimagining the future of the workplace and what your team wants in a supervisor in the new working world – What roadblocks prevent flexibility on your campus? Is this a priority for advocating for auxiliaries (state, local levels)?
  • Re-Evaluating Safety/Security Plans (Prevention, Response, Mitigation)
  • Post-COVID – What does it mean to have your auxiliaries be disaster resilient
    Advocating Internally for Auxiliary Services
  • Driving Revenue (alt revenue)
  • How Business Partners can showcase how they progress a campus’ core values and increase commitment to things such as student employment, JEDI initiatives, safety/security measures, sustainability, giving back to the local community, affordability, mental health/wellbeing
