Best of 2023 - Most Popular Blogs, Podcasts, and Webinars from TouchNet

12/19/2023 8:00 PM

In 2023, higher education saw and continues to see a tremendous amount of pressure from outside forces that, frankly, make the business of higher education more challenging. From legislative restrictions on the types of holds institutions can implement to resuming activity on past-due account receivables; from new compliance standards for accepting payments to new technologies that are driving student expectations for on-campus experiences, business officers at colleges and universities have a lot of competing priorities to manage.

As we looked back on the topics we covered this year, it is no surprise that the pieces our audience engaged with most align with those outside forces. The following blogs, podcasts and webinars were the most read, listened to, and watched pieces that TouchNet published this year.
