Executive-in-Residence Presentation: “A Burning Platform for Institutional Transformation in Higher Education – Lessons from Research Institutions and from HBCUs”

  • Loews Vanderbilt 2100 West End Ave Nashville, TN, 37203 United States

A powerful case for human capital and business model transformation will be shared by a national HR thought leader and former CHRO.  Some have suggested that the current challenges facing historically black colleges and universities represent a “canary in the coal mine” perspective on the risks facing all of higher education today. A case for HR’s leadership in and the need for both HR transformation and business transformation will be explored. Discussion will also address the skills and competencies required of today’s CHRO, and capabilities needed within a strategic HR organization.
