124: Power, Control & Shared Governance

This week on Navigating Change, we’re talking about the space between power and control on campus. It is somewhere between these two concepts that there exists a détente between well-meaning though protective faculty and campus leaders. As an ideal, each recognizes their own power and influence, and uses it to build a better community of learners. More often, power is wielded to protect turf and demonstrate authority at the expense of true progress. 

Today, Howard Teibel and Pete Wright discuss the tools and controls in place to help institutional leaders come to agreement and craft a model of shared governance each can be proud to own.
