Ballard Spahr is pleased to continue its Hot Topics in Education Webinar Series with our strategic partner, rpk GROUP. Please join us as we go over the various fiscal challenges currently facing higher education institutions and the growing trend towards strategic partnerships, mergers and acquisitions, and closures. Topics will include:

  • Why colleges and universities are slow to consider strategic alternatives, rather than pursue more debilitating cost-cutting measures to stay afloat
  • How to create a "safe space" to engage institutional leadership in conversations around strategic partnerships, mergers and acquisitions, and closures
  • Creating a roadmap to successfully implement institutional strategy
  • Best practices and pitfalls to avoid
