Rebuilding Trust in Community Colleges through Leadership, Emotional Healing, and Participatory Governance
Awan, Seher
Community College Enterprise, v20 n2 p45-55 Fall 2014
Numerous studies have been conducted examining leadership within community colleges, participatory governance and its role, as well as conditions that support organizational change. However, no analysis has been completed documenting the rebuilding of trust within a community college after a trauma is experienced on an institutional level. Broken hearts and broken trust are not just consequences of infidelity; these characteristics are often seen amongst faculty and long-time staff of community colleges where trust has been broken and institutional instability incurred. This article reviews and compares the emotional recovery process from infidelity to rebuilding trust within community colleges, specifically identifying steps for recovery, and highlighting key activities that can begin the healing and rebuilding of trust.
