University Leaders' Use of Episodic Power to Support Faculty Community Engagement
O'Meara, KerryAnn; Lounder, Andrew; Hodges, Aleece
Michigan Journal of Community Service Learning, v19 n2 p5-20 Spr 2013
This study explores faculty perceptions of the actions taken by organizational leaders to support the faculty's community engagement. We draw upon Lawrence's (2008) theory of power and agency in organizations to name these strategic actions as episodic power and consider how and why each act taken by organizational leaders mattered to these community-engaged faculty. (Contains 1 table and 1 note.)
