Catalysts for Building a College of Education and Human Service Professions--A Case Study on the Characteristics of Organizational Leadership Innovation in Education.
Bright, Larry K.; And Others
The focus of this document is on innovation and change in university professional education. During a four-year period from 1981-1985, the professional education college of the University of Minnesota, Duluth, initiated and implemented a major change process which was based on organizational leadership theory. This project is used as a case study to address questions on leadership, change procedures, the actors in the innovation, characteristics and theory of the intervention, and the context in which the change occurred. The paper records the four years of study, assessment, analysis, planning, and change that occurred at the University. Following a discussion of the context of the University of Minnesota and the College of Education and Human Service Profession, constraints and catalysts for change are considered, followed by a section on organization development principals of the change process. An outline is given of the effects of human service concepts, a Dean's Grant project, and technology and core curriculum interventions. Following these sections are seven short papers by College center directors, department heads, and faculty which extend concepts of the main body of the paper. (JD)
