Event: Building a Vision to Engage, Rally, and Inspire
Friday, November 1, 2019: 11:25am - 12:25pm Central at the ACI Fall Conference
You have detailed plans that map out the path forward for your institution, but what’s the vision they lead you toward—and can you bring those plans to life without one? To engage stakeholders, rally your community, and inspire significant gifts, you need a clear, compelling vision guiding your institution.
This session will explore the importance of vision at colleges and universities, sharing success stories from liberal arts institutions across the country. The presenter will lay out guidelines for what makes a good vision statement and discuss strategies for engaging your community to shape a shared vision that resonates on campus and beyond. Attendees will leave the session with a strong understanding of visioning fundamentals and the tools to begin a visioning process at their own institutions.
Presenter: Pat Chesnut, Senior Consultant, Communications, Campbell & Company
