Leading the Way: A College of Education and Health Sciences' Role in Higher Education Reform.
Sattler, Joan L.; Jensen, Rita A.
This document provides an example of how colleges and schools of education can lead by example through their active participation in campus-based change initiatives. The paper describes the roles which a Dean and an Associate Dean of a College of Education and Health Sciences played in university-wide strategic planning and reform efforts. Two strategic planning initiatives are highlighted, as well as one component of the North Central Accreditation process. These include the areas of curricular excellence, quality and work innovation, and assessment of student academic achievement. Finally, three principles that can guide colleges and schools of education in their efforts to lead by example through their active participation in campus-based change initiatives are suggested. These are: (1) leverage your strengths; (2) where two or more are gathered, there is politics; and (3) never promise without a plan. Four charts suitable for making overhead projection transparencies are attached. (ND)
