Shared governance can be likened to an arranged marriage – some are great, and some just aren’t. For the good ones, both embrace and are accountable for changes and look to the common good and a shared vision of the future. When shared governance isn’t good, when administration and faculty aren’t on the same page – one becomes focused on the bigger picture and one on the details – and critical changes don’t get implemented (or they do with sometimes huge resistance which hurts the institution going forward).
This doesn’t need to be this way.
TCL’s approaches to shared governance and change promote trust and a shared vision among faculty and administration, thus enabling a university to move forward in ways better than it thought possible.
We help you establish the best forms of shared governance for your institution, which protect the integrity of your programs while facilitating your ability to be nimble and make the changes necessary to stay relevant / thrive in the education space.
