The Charter of the Post-Pandemic CFO

Supporting the Mission Through Strategic Staffing

Post-pandemic CFOs must help their institutions chart a path forward despite reduced income as HEERF runs its course, a pending economic downturn, and the ever-nearing enrollment cliff. There are two choices: face the data head on or run from it. 


Auburn University and University of Alabama - two SEC rivals - share one thing in common: a relentless pursuit of actionable data to inform strategic planning and academic, administrative investments.


Watch the webinar replay to hear from Kelli Shomaker, SVP for Business & Administration and CFO (Auburn University), and Adam Tate, Executive Director of Finance (Univesity of Alabama) on ways business officers must embrace data to overcome the stigma of the “budget blocker” given the challenging financial landscape ahead, and evolve as strategic shepherds and investors of the institutional mission.
