The capacity to innovate for many colleges and universities is no longer just a differentiator; it is a survival factor. Join us for a discussion series to hear Academic Impressions author David Kiel interview four outstanding college and university presidents and chancellors who are leading and supporting extraordinary change efforts. In this series, each session will focus on how to innovate at one particular type of institution:
- The community college
- The research-intensive university.
- The regional university
- The baccalaureate degree-granting institution
Participants will learn steps that leaders and innovators can take to build an innovation-friendly culture and the five stages of institutional support needed to create a pipeline for innovation.
How it Works
This discussion series will consist of four separate dialogues with innovative college and university CEOs, each focused on how to innovate at one particular type of institution. The series will progress as follows:
Transforming Community Colleges with Mike Flores, chancellor of the Alamo Community College District
Making Innovation Fundamental in the Research-Intensive University with Kevin Guskiewicz, chancellor of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
Renewing and Strengthening the Regional University with Robert Johnson, president of Western New England University
Designing a Baccalaureate Program for Future Generations with Nivine Megahed, president of National Louis University
Who Should Attend
Senior academic leaders including presidents, trustees, and provosts—as well as deans, department chairs, and any other faculty, staff, or students who are engaged in academic innovation—will benefit from this discussion series.
David Kiel's book, Creating a Pipeline for Innovation Within Your College or University, will be published by Academic Impressions during the summer of 2022 and is available for pre-order here. It provides guidance for senior leaders and academic intrapreneurs working together to bring about positive change. Using his comprehensive five stage model, they can implement dynamic initiatives. Progressing through these stages, the innovative ventures then build the institution's reputation, strengthen its programs, and generate significant income. David is also an experienced higher education consultant and leadership coach. You can learn more about his work here.
