This course examines change in higher education in its many forms and areas. The difference between managing and leading an institution of higher education is explored. Management styles will be discussed. The attributes of an effective leader will also be studied. Case studies will be used to examine a broad spectrum of changes in an institution of higher education and how to effectively deal with the need for change arising from the hiring of new personnel, changes in leadership, new programs, new technology, new federal/state regulations and change arising from emergencies/disasters. The leader as a change agent will be examined from a wide variety of aspects. The course will explore middle managers as the implementers of responses to change.
