EDUC 8642 - Transformative Leadership in Higher Education


(6 sem. cr.) Effective leadership in higher education goes beyond managing or reacting to change; it anticipates change and seeks out opportunities for growth for the institution and its members while keeping the institution focused on its mission and goals for learning. Education professionals in this course focus on key leadership skills, such as communication, negotiation, decision making, strategic planning, and conflict management. They research and discuss strategies for navigating the complex political environment of today’s colleges and universities, cultivating a culture of evidence, and developing the institution’s intellectual and human resources. They also practice analyzing, evaluating, and applying research methods appropriate to data-driven planning and decision making.
