In addition, he will share how institutions are addressing these trends to ensure the needs of your enrolled students are met. He’ll also discuss tactics some colleges are using to “right size” and make the case for lower enrollment. Develop realistic budgets, maintain viability and plan for projected enrollment trends appropriately.
W. Kent Barnds is the Executive Vice President of External Relations at Augustana College in Rock Island, Illinois.

Develop effective enrollment strategies to address and combat trends related to the declining and shifting demographics of eligible students — gain familiarity with the latest trends so you can combat declining enrollment on your campus.
Implement steps to maintain enrollment numbers — combat the decline in state and federal support, tuition-driven pressure and ensure you achieve your revenue goals.
Incorporate successful enrollment and retention strategies from other institutions that are facing the same pressure into your strategic plans — effectively maintain profitability, enrollment numbers and increase graduation rates.
Analyze the current and projected enrollment trends — embrace that this is the “new normal” and meet the challenge by taking appropriate action to attract, retain, and graduate those students that enroll at your institution.
Understand the importance of an institution-wide approach to meeting enrollment goals — engage faculty, staff, coaches and current students in the process to appeal to and enroll the right students who will succeed and thrive on your campus.

Webinar: Peter Lake on Duty of Care: The 2018 Precedent-Setting Cases & Their Implications on Your Institution’s Legal Obligations
In 2018, the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court and the California Supreme Court handed down major, precedent-setting decisions with respect to college student safety and a college’s duty to prevent foreseeable violence to students. Both courts determined the college/student relationship itself is “special.” This has enormous implications for the future of college student safety law.
How will these two cases from 2018 influence your institution’s legal obligations regarding reasonable care in 2019 and beyond?
Join Professor Peter Lake, an internationally-recognized expert on higher education law and policy, as he provides you with a comprehensive overview of the implication of these decisions and the impact, they will have on the evolution of campus safety law and operational practices on campus.
Peter Lake currently serves as a Professor of Law, Charles A. Dana Chair, and Director of the Center for Excellence in Higher Education Law and Policy at Stetson University College of Law in Gulfport, Florida.Topics Covered:
As a result of this webinar, participants will be able to:
- Examine the two key state supreme court rulings to understand what “reasonable action” to protect students looks like in various contexts — help your institution’s centralized system for assisting students in distress encourage appropriate communication between academic affairs, student affairs and campus support services.
- Educate colleagues serving on CARE/BIT/Threat Assessment Teams about the key components of these cases — inform critical stakeholders so they are more knowledgeable and better prepared to work with current and evolving standards of care.
- Identify the core components of potential institutional negligence liability — develop strategies that appropriately identify and mitigate reasonably foreseeable risks of self-harm and violence in compliance with educational and legal standards.
- Create an educational community that facilitates reasonable levels of safety and respects the autonomy and privacy of students — provide a safe and responsible living-learning environment that allows your students to succeed
