Faculty Leadership and Institutional Resilience: Indicators, Promising Practices, and Key Questions
Norman, Brian
Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, v51 n4 p48-54 2019
Shared governance has become a critical focus for senior leaders concerned with institutional resilience and effectiveness. A blue-ribbon commission of the Association of Governing Boards of Universities and Colleges (AGB, 2014) called on boards to take seriously this area of responsibility. At the same time, shared governance is a notoriously contested and misunderstood area for faculty and senior administrators in the modern university (e.g., AGB 2018; Bahls, 2014a; Bowen & Tobin, 2015; Gerber, 2014; Ginsburg, 2011; Scott, 2018). In cooperation with the Collaborative on Academic Careers in Higher Education (COACHE), the Harvard Graduate School of Education's research-practice partnership, the author examined data about on-the-ground successes in faculty leadership development. The findings should help boards, presidents, provosts, deans, and senior faculty better understand why and how to develop faculty leaders to support institutional quality and sustainability.
