Report of the leadership collaborative retreat


This report summarizes the sessions and discussions at The Leadership Collaborative (TLC) Retreat held on January 6-8, 2010. Change in Higher Education was the main theme at this meeting. Ann Austin, a national expert on change in higher education and a professor at Michigan State University, stressed the importance of finding leaders throughout the institution and supporting those leaders, having the involvement of senior leadership, and taking the time to define a clear and compelling vision for the institution that helps drive the change process forward. During the meeting, participants from 24 institutions, including team leaders and 15 provosts, discussed different policies and reward structures in place at their universities for faculty engaged in STEM teaching and STEM education research.
