The Politics of Higher Education

LIVE on April 28th at noon (eastern) with your coach, Missy Gluckmann 

Have you sat in meetings wondering why people talk and nothing gets done? Are you unsure of how the org chart impacts your ability to do your work?  If you’re frustrated or confused about the mechanics of higher ed, this one is for you!

Politics are complex no matter the organization, but higher education has its own organizational structure and funding, hiring and tenure practices, and more than make it uniquely complex to navigate.

This webinar is for anyone who works (or wants to work) in higher education and has thought – getting the work done shouldn’t be this hard! In this webinar, we will:

  • consider the organizational structure
  • explore differing perspectives
  • examine the 4 P’s
  • offer strategies for finding common ground

  • “I appreciated the exploration of the word politics. It often has a negative connotation but as in most words politics is a neutral word when explored objectively. Politics can be a very positive way to navigate the field of international education as long as your heart and intentions are in a positive place. ” – K. S.
