Doing Our Jobs / Saving Our Sanity: Defining Our Role, Responsibility and Risks Related to Serving Our University Communities

During this hour-long webinar, we'll focus on what are the distinct challenges and helpful approaches and techniques for us working in the field of collaborative governance and within a university?   A variety of UNCG members will share examples / stories from their experiences - and of course, time for exchanges and discussion! Topics will include:  


  • Mission: What is my job to say yes to or no to (given where I sit / my role for serving the Univ)?
  • Structure: What are the choices around how it’s built to serve?
  • Fiscal: What kind of funding, support, or contracting is or could be in place? 
  • Controversy and Risk: what are the issues of taking on high visibility / high stakes issues sitting in a university? 
  • Capacity: what’s my role for building the university’s capacity for collaboration? 

Lara Fowler (Penn State), John Stephens (UNC Chapel Hill), Marina Piscolisch (Univ of Hawaii), Peter Harkema (Portland State) will all share experiences.
