Navigating a University Restructuring: Strategies to Prepare & Guide Your Program

September 15, 2022 11:00am - 12:00pm
Free for NCFR members and CFLEs / $89 for nonmembers & non-CFLEs

In this webinar, you’ll learn strategies for supporting your academic program and the people in it when a restructuring is forthcoming or underway at your institution.

Presenters will share their experiences of both voluntary and required transitions within and outside of their programs. Specifically, attendees will hear about potential needs and issues that could arise during a restructuring or renaming process, and strategies to manage them. You will also gain ideas for boosting your program’s value before a reorganization is on the table, so that you’re in the best possible position to make your case if or when a restructuring does occur.
