For most schools, the strategy of cost recovery, community use of facilities and rental fees is a big challenge – you have to reform board policies, distribute event management, improve fiscal controls, manage risk and liability and more.

Addressing education operations professionals at SchoolDude University East, a SchoolDude training and development event taking place this week in Myrtle Beach, S.C., SchoolDude Co-Founder Lee Prevost encouraged attendees to focus more on strategy and less on tactics.
“For most schools, the strategy of cost recovery, community use of facilities and rental fees is a big challenge – you have to reform board policies, distribute event management, improve fiscal controls, manage risk and liability and more,” said Prevost. “SchoolDude University is all about peer collaboration and development so we will dive into how you plan and implement those related operational strategies to achieve success at your institution.”
SchoolDude University attendees have an opportunity for hands on learning with SchoolDude’s client services and implementation teams, peers from other educational institutions and members of SchoolDude’s 2015 Campus Champions, a group of clients who are achieving above and beyond results with the adoption of operations management industry best practices.
