Shared Leadership for a Green, Global, and Google World
Duin, Ann Hill; Baer, Linda L.
Planning for Higher Education, v39 n1 p30-38 Oct-Dec 2010
Higher education institutions must be resilient as they face vastly increased expectations for sustainable environments, global focus, and technological support. Speed of response to these expectations ultimately depends on shared vision, shared agreement, and shared accountability. In this article, the authors challenge all those engaged with planning in higher education to foster shared leadership throughout all levels of the organization as a means to meet the challenges and opportunities in this Green, Global, and Google (GGG) world and, in so doing, reinvent higher education. Here, "green" represents the need for ongoing attention to sustainability, "global" highlights the expanding global market for higher education and the evolution of approaches to global education, and "Google" denotes the increasing use of Internet (or "above-campus") resources in place of local computing resources. Each "G" force represents a complex issue in demand of shared leadership. (Contains 5 figures.)
