FCI Seminar Series: Faculty as Part of Campus Shared Leadership for Change
Fundamental changes are unlikely to occur on college campuses without faculty buy in, support and leadership. Faculty leaders are often much more compelling their colleagues given their resonance for understanding the lives of other faculty. When changes such as diversity, evidence based teaching practices, and interdisciplinarity are proposed they are much more likely to be scaled if faculty leaders take up the mantle of change. In this session, we explore the role of faculty leaders in shared leadership processes and ways to encourage and support faculty change agents. Drawing on studies of campuses that have promoted key changes, the lessons learned for other campuses will be distilled.
