Developing a Shared Leadership Vision in a College Setting
Fierke, Kerry K.
Journal of Case Studies in Education, v6 Sep 2014
The University of Minnesota College of Pharmacy is nationally recognized for its leadership curriculum. Despite the College's success in developing student leaders, an overall guiding leadership philosophy within the College has not been specifically articulated. To begin the process of developing a shared leadership vision, a democratic, "ground-up" approach to discussing leadership was applied. Over a three-month period, 94 faculty, staff, and graduate students attended eight sessions across two campuses, working together to develop a consensus definition of leadership. The qualitative data from these sessions was forwarded to a College committee, who will lead the next step of incorporating the data into a philosophy statement used in curriculum changes and student development activities.
