Our panel of department chairs will share their experiences related to:

  • Partnering with, or potentially being acquired by, corporate institutions
  • Short- and long-term implications of corporate acquisitions (both pros and cons)
  • Considerations for how to protect you and your staff 

An interactive discussion with the full group will follow.

Note: All attendees will be invited to participate in a brief, pre-event survey to share their experience with current or potential acquisitions. The de-identified data will be shared with the group as part of the discussion.

Registration

Although this invite-only event is free of charge, registration will be required.
