[AAC&U Annual Meeting] "Raising Faculty Voices: Best Practices in Cultivating Faculty Leadership for Institutional Quality and Change"


Friday, January 25, 2019, 2:45pm to 4:00pm


Hyatt Regency Atlanta, Hanover C


This research and discussion session begins with the premise that any meaningful and sustainable institutional change requires deep and ongoing partnership between senior leaders and faculty. This partnership depends on faculty leadership as much as administrative leadership, but what does an effective “growing your own” leadership strategy look like? We will share results from a new Collaborative on Academic Careers in Higher Education (COACHE) project that is identifying best practices in cultivating faculty leadership. Based on our quantitative and qualitative findings, we will engage academic leaders and faculty themselves to consider and critique best practices in faculty leadership development. Participants will learn to spot the key habits and indicators that suggest what is working and what is missing on their campuses.
