Thought Leaders Report 2020: Preparing for the Student of 2024 [PDF]
Students entering higher education in the next decade will be the most diverse incoming class in higher education history—and the vanguard of an increasingly diverse generation. They will have been raised with technology from birth and will consider online interaction as natural as breathing. They will be alert to the importance of mental health and wellness, both in themselves and in their peers. They will have low tolerance for slow administrative processes. They will expect their professors to teach in engaging, interactive ways and make smart use of technology. They will expect a lot of them¬selves. They will expect a lot of their institutions. They will know what they are paying for their education, and they will demand every penny’s worth. Is today’s campus ready for these students? The answer: Yes—and no. Higher education is moving in the right direction, but it faces unprecedented demands and challenges. We are only now beginning to understand that the old normal is never coming back. We must find ways to adapt to a new normal and a new set of expectations from our future students.

Thought Leaders Report 2019: Innovation in an Age of Disruption [PDF]
How do you think outside the box? In other words, how do you approach thinking differently about the world around you and your institutional and organizational challenges? More importantly, how do you go beyond just thinking differently to actually seeing things differently?
This question is what drove the entire 2019 APPA Thought Leaders symposium as they explored the mechanics of innovation. They drew on the experience of experts in innovation and entrepreneurship and discussed ways to protect experimentation and creativity from institutional forces dedicated to the status quo. They practiced developing innovative strategies for addressing the challenges facing higher education. And they learned that creativity must be fostered and encouraged within an institution, by modeling the entrepreneurial mindset to instill a curiosity to innovate.

Total Cost of Ownership (APPA TCO) brings a new strategy that allows financial administrators to have full knowledge of an investment: how the investment is operating, how the investment is performing, how much additional financial commitment will be needed throughout the life cycle of the investment, and when to best recapitalize the investment in the asset. The impacts of consistent or occasional noninvestment can also be analyzed for long-term overall impact.
APPA TCO assists an organization with three major asset decisions:
Sustainability Case Studies: Best Practices in Campus Life [PDF].
This collection of short case studies highlights a range of best practices—both innovative and practical—in place right now that enhance environmental stewardship, improve cost and energy efficiencies, and provide for greater collaborations among students, faculty, and staffs at our colleges, universities, and schools.
The genesis of this project started with a simple call for case studies on projects and initiatives that campus sustainability, facilities, or energy departments were proud of and wanted to share with others. This book includes 123 total best practices from 92 separate colleges, universities, or schools. These programs represent only a small number of the depth, and breadth of advancements in campus sustainability and environmental stewardship. Clearly, there are innumerable positive and beneficial programs going on throughout North America that provide leadership to students, efficiencies to campuses, and a hopeful future.
