Catalysts for Creating the Future of the Academy: UMN Case Studies on Shared Leadership
This Leadership Research Forum will feature Ann Hill Duin
Professor, Writing Studies, and Associate Vice President, Information Technology
Globalization, immersive research and learning environments, unlimited access to information and analytics, and fiscal realities continue to impact higher education — and higher education IT. Although IT organizations face immense pressure to meet significantly greater expectations at significantly less cost, with such pressure comes the opportunity to move IT beyond managing commodity resources to serving as a strategic and catalytic force for transforming higher education. To do so, however, demands an evolution from distributed to highly coordinated leadership as well as fostering the institutional conditions for enabling strategic shared leadership.
In this research forum, I will challenge all those engaged in higher education to think even more boldly about integrative leadership. After a brief overview of how my scholarship on shared leadership and collaboration evolved, I will share a case study that documents a four-year effort at the University of Minnesota to develop highly coordinated IT leadership as well as the institutional conditions for enabling shared leadership. This forum will be highly interactive; please bring “smart” devices for participating as we delve into understanding the current challenges and opportunities facing this transformative effort. I will conclude with a view toward the future that includes success indicators made possible through the foundation and practice of shared leadership.
