Designing Your Leadership Portfolio for Innovation and Change


Audience: President, Provost, selected vice presidents and deans.
This is a leadership development session based on the NCD Leadership-Innovation-Change 360 self-assessment instrument. Requires gathering input from superiors and subordinates prior to session. Should be used as a part of ongoing leadership development efforts.

Bridging the Gap: Improving Collaboration Across Boundaries for Student Success


Audience: Anyone with responsibility for managing or delivering student services including academic advising, residence hall services, career services, remedial services, financial aid and others.
This is a cross-functional workshop designed to create new understandings and new agreements for coordination, cooperation and ultimately collaboration between and among academic affairs and student affairs. This is directly related to creating a seamless student support chain on the campus.

Practical Strategies for Faculty Involvement in Innovation and Change


Audience: Faculty members, school and college deans and others who may be interested.
This is a session designed to engage faculty in understanding the business case for strategic innovation and change. The session will be interactive to create dialogue about ways that faculty can help support student success both inside and outside of the classroom. It will also serve as a forum for better understanding of the issues that faculty see that affect student persistence.

Metrics that Matter: Information Strategies to Drive Decisions and Actions


Audience: President, provost, vice presidents, deans and directors plus CIO, IT and IR staff.
This is a workshop about creating decision support information that is predictive rather than retrospective. It is about measuring the right things and communicating data proactively to guide decisions and motivate actions. The workshop will include reference to real campus data and development of action plans to improve the use of existing data and create new measures. This can include how to leverage new software tools, how to coordinate existing systems that don’t talk to each other and how to create a more data driven culture on campus.

Retention, Graduation and The Changing World of Work


Audience: President, provost, deans, select faculty, directors of academic advising and career services.
The world of work is rapidly being transformed as we move deeper into the Information Age. This session explores the changing nature of work and the changing nature of our students as we think beyond our traditional age students to include transfer students, adult learners, veterans and international students who strongly link their academic experience with future employment opportunities. This workshop will help attendees explore new ideas for how teaching and learning can become more relevant, more exciting and more effective. There will be lots of new information as well as change for dialogue and application of these ideas for this campus.
