EDUC 6157 - Understanding Institutions: Organizational Behavior and Culture


(3 sem. cr.) Effective leadership within colleges and universities depends on the ability to identify important aspects of an organization’s structure and culture as well as to adapt one’s behavior to that culture. In this course, education professionals examine patterns of organization, governance, and culture in higher education, and they assess strategies for working effectively within governance structures and organizational cultures to achieve desired goals. They engage in readings and assignments that emphasize the organization’s ability to learn and change in response to internal and external factors, including the ever-changing use of technology in academic programs and services.

  (Prerequisite(s): EDUC 6174.)
