Leading Change in Higher Education: Virtual Workshop

Join an interactive workshop to explore and apply a research-based toolkit for change leadership in higher education.

Watch recording.

The higher education environment continues to evolve in new and often unpredictable ways.

The challenges are varied and constantly evolving, from the changing landscape of diversity, equity, and inclusion to declining enrollments and corresponding budget realignments and waning public support for higher education. Leaders must be prepared to navigate this unsettled environment and continue to move their institutions forward. It is more important now than ever that higher education leaders have the tools they need to drive proactive and strategic changes on campus.

This virtual workshop will highlight the Change Leadership Toolkit (CLT), a step-by-step, research-based guidebook for leaders engaged in projects that touch multiple departments, divisions, or units and require deep and meaningful changes to policies, procedures, norms, and cultures. The CLT was developed by Susan Elrod, Adrianna Kezar, and Ángel de Jesus González and published by the Pullias Center for Higher Education at the University of Southern California.

This workshop is co-presented by AASCU and the Network for Change and Continuous Innovation.
