Webinar at 2 p.m. ET

In the post-COVID era, colleges and universities looking to meet the evolving demands of students must examine the administrative processes that facilitate education delivery to students, known as academic operations.

Participants will:

  • Define academic operations and understand how academic operations traditionally have been managed

  • Learn about the importance of integrating academic operations to help guide better decision-making
