In recent years, higher education leaders have discovered just how far-reaching change can be. Change and uncertainty often pose challenges, but the degree of uncertainty and the negative impacts of change can be mitigated by effective preparation.
Organizational Change in Uncertain Times: A Leadership Program for Higher Education is designed for administrators who are responsible for change agendas within higher education – from initial strategy to implementation and evaluation.
Within a supportive learning environment, you’ll assess how well-positioned your institutions, departments, or areas are to meet current and future challenges. You’ll reflect on your own leadership strengths and opportunities for growth. You’ll explore skills and strategies to lead your teams through periods of change and uncertainty. And you’ll develop a blueprint to help you lead through anticipated challenges.
This four-week virtual institute is designed as a synchronous, interactive learning experience where you engage with higher-education peers and HGSE faculty. The institute combines contemporary research with practical application and offers you an opportunity to apply best practices to a specific challenge within your organization, department, or area. Program content includes live sessions, discussion boards, break-out sessions, and readings.
We strongly encourage live participation, as this will be the best opportunity to engage with your colleagues and faculty in the program. However, all live sessions will be recorded and made available on the participant program website afterward.
If possible, you should plan to attend the live webinar orientation session on Wednesday, January 31, 2024, as it will include useful introductory content and provide a valuable opportunity for face-to-face connection with fellow students and faculty. If you are unable to participate in the live event, we encourage you to watch the orientation recording.
Live sessions with faculty will be held on the following dates from 12 to 1:30 p.m. (ET). The live sessions will be recorded.
