Deep Dive Workshops on Innovation and Change

“Hope, Direction, Clarity. Best Retreat Ever.”

These words sum up what participants tell us they get from our Deep Dive Workshops on Innovation and Change. Leaders are all too aware of the urgent and immediate need for innovation and change in higher education. The mission of New Campus Dynamics is to support leaders who are ready to engage and mobilize their campuses to make innovation and change part of everyone’s work. Our Deep Dive Workshops are an important element of any innovation strategy. With our expert design and facilitation, your faculty, administrators, staff and students can learn to take the mystery out of the process of innovation and experience generating ideas that will lead to action.

A Two-Day Innovation and Change Deep Dive

Innovation and Change Deep Dives can be convened at the college, division or institutional level. They are sponsored by the senior leadership and are designed to support and align with all current strategic goals. The Deep Dive two-day experience brings leaders together on the first day and then expands to a general session on the second. The Deep Dive is planned in collaboration with the senior leaders. We take the time necessary in advance to ensure that the content meets the specific needs of your institution.
