“Hope, Direction, Clarity. Best Retreat Ever.”
Campus Workshops on Innovation and Change
These words sum up what participants tell us they get from our Campus 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 Campus 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.
The faculty for NCD Campus Workshops are drawn from the NCD consulting team. Founding partners Larry Smith and Al Blixt lead each Campus Workshops project with other experts added to the faculty as needed. You will learn from the experts who literally “wrote the book” on leading innovation and change.
Leading Innovation and Change: A guide for Chief Student Affairs Officers on Shaping the future
by Laurence N. Smith, Albert B. Blixt, Shannon E. Ellis, Stephen J. Gill, and Kevin Kruger
Leading Innovation and Change is a manual for implementing systemic transformational change in colleges and universities. The authors detail eight steps for revolutionizing the division of student affairs into a leader and producer of institution-wide innovation and change. They present a combination of organizational theory, effective strategies, helpful tools, and practical advice, and discuss the conditions that must be present for an organization to overcome resistance to change.
STRATEGIC INNOVATION IS THE
FUTURE OF HIGHER EDUCATION
Colleges and universities have always transformed with the times even if that fact is often overlooked. Positioning the campus to embrace such change is the key role of leadership. You can build an innovation culture that engages faculty, students and staff in imagining and achieving a shared vision of success. New Campus Dynamics (NCD) was formed to help higher education leaders incorporate innovation into the very fabric of their institutions. The team at NCD combines deep experience in higher education with proven organizational change expertise to partner with clients in creating comprehensive solutions that turn challenges into opportunities.
