Week 5: Leadership in Higher Education

 

Introduction - Week Five

Leading in times of dramatic change is difficult and challenging. Higher education has seen many cycles of hype where promised changed has failed to materialize. For university leaders, the constellation of change drivers raises the stakes in organizational planning. There appears to be growing recognition that universities are entering a period of significant change. How, or the pace at which, to enact that change in HE is a central concern facing presidents and boards.

Readings & Resources - Week Five

Higher Education Network:  Take us to your leader: thoughts on leadership in higher education

The Washington Post:  The Leadership Vacuum in Higher Education 

Case Study: University of Virginia

 

Activities - Week Five

The readings this week present a view that change is needed. The pace of change is a central question. In your reflections and comments this week, consider the broad role of the university in society and how that role is being impacted by technological change. Universities are not mirrors for society. They are also agents that comment on and change society.

How is the societal role of HE being addressed (or ignored) in the current change language?

Share your reflections and comments on your blog or in the Week Five Discussion Forum
