Revolution is The Only Solution: Navigate Change in Higher Education

Event Date: 
October 20, 2017
9:30 am to 11:00 am
Rouss & Robertson Hall, Room 123
Allison Vaillancourt
Vice President, Business Affairs & Human Resources, University of Arizona

Much of the writing and research in change theory is built upon corporate models that don't resonate or even work in higher education environments. Academic institutions need change architects who can plan and execute transitions within decentralized and often silo-oriented cultures with members inclined to remind, "you're not the boss of me." 

In this session, Allison Vaillancourt will discuss how lessons from social revolutions and crowdsourcing campaigns can be used to navigate change in college and university settings.
