When we set a clear and audacious vision, we get to tell stories of success on the journey. The work is hard and you will hit a wall. In this video, a university president explains how driving toward the vision will push you over the wall.
  • Why is hitting the wall inevitable?
  • What is the most important thing to do when you hit the wall?
00:08
and then this is also cool if you’re
00:11
wondering how much money has Marrero
00:13
spent on this we spend about 250,000
00:16
dollars a year on engaged West our
00:18
budget when we started was a hundred and
00:21
fifty nine point six million dollars
00:23
when I take away some of the that’s
00:25
that’s recurring real budget that
00:28
doesn’t have any of the building budgets
00:30
or the one-time dollars that we get in
00:31
our budgets really about two hundred and
00:33
forty million but that’s just the
00:35
hardcore recurring Eng and the set
00:37
auxilary is based on fees and an
00:40
allocation three to one revenue to debt
00:42
ratio that’s pretty good and 22 percent
00:46
increase in for you so we were a hundred
00:48
and fifty nine point six I said now two
00:50
hundred and four million
00:51
so let’s look at a return on investment
00:53
in four years we’ve spent about a
00:55
million dollars on engage West we now
00:58
have a budget that’s forty four million
00:59
dollars greater than it was four years
01:01
ago that’s a pretty good investment and
01:04
a return on investment of what we’re
01:06
trying to cheap but even more important
01:07
than that is the student success record
01:09
four-year graduation rate record
01:11
five-year graduation rate record degrees
01:13
conferred that’s when we really start to
01:16
tell a great story of the outcomes of
01:18
what we’re trying to do together so it’s
01:22
not easy first year was a honeymoon
01:24
period second year reality sets in third
01:27
year pushing shove so Natalie it’s gonna
01:31
be a fun journey for you I can’t wait to
01:32
get some calls and we can talk through
01:34
it but it’s hard because this is when it
01:37
really reality not only sets in but then
01:40
where you really are revealed where the
01:42
functional areas on your campus are not
01:44
on board and what are you gonna do about
01:47
it are you gonna make tough decisions
01:50
and leadership are you gonna give them
01:52
every opportunity to succeed there’s
01:54
incredible leaders on my campus right
01:56
now that are making that decision in
01:59
their head if they want to really
02:00
continue in this process with us because
02:03
it’s not easy and it’s not inherent to
02:06
what they believe we should be doing and
02:08
those are decisions that have to be made
02:10
but it can’t hold you back as you
02:12
continue so what does that look like we
02:14
call it the wall and you’re gonna fill
02:16
it and if you don’t continue to drive
02:19
your results will decline
02:21
you will go back and much faster than
02:24
you can ever anticipate you have to keep
02:27
driving forward so we’re pushing through
02:29
that wall this year
02:30
that’s our goal hopefully when I see you
02:32
on a year I can say we’re on top of that
02:33
wall we are in a certain areas of our
02:36
campus but not throughout and so I
02:38
encourage each of you on your journey
02:40
know that it’s not going to be easy
02:42
you’re gonna push along that way you’re
02:45
gonna feel more and more pressure and
02:46
even if we get to the top of that wall
02:48
then we do a whole new program of
02:50
sustaining and legacy and that’s why we
02:52
call this year the legacy or as we’re
02:54
building that through so
