Über den Kurs

This course is open to professionals interested in learning more about leadership in higher education for a changing demographic or interested in developing their own leadership skills. The very idea that individuals can be taught to lead is not without its skeptics. Reasonable people, even some scholars in the field, point to the important traits, skills, and attributes that are observed in many visible leaders and contend that certain qualities necessary for effective leadership are not easily transmitted. To accept this premise and conclude that some people are born as natural leaders and others cannot be expected to lead at all is to make a mistake at the other end of the logical spectrum. We believe that leadership can be taught as long as it is concurrently nurtured, that most people possess a constellation of strengths around which they can construct their own leadership philosophy and approach, and that leadership development programming—if done well—can be transformative for organizers and participants. Course Level Objectives: Understand the historical narrative of institutions as well as institutional structures that have created instances of inclusion and exclusion in colleges and universities. Describe how transformational leadership is enacted for diversity, equity, and inclusion in a complex and contested environment. Compare legislative, governance, and public accountability and expectations in relation to contemporary issues in higher education. Analyze the strategic diversity planning process and documents of a selected institution. Recommend innovations and opportunities for transformational change at various levels of the ecological model using the strategic diversity planning process as a tool....

This was a well-designed and delivered course. I learned so much about leading EDI initiatives and reflecting on my own thoughts about how to apply EDI strategies in my own unit at the college.

I really enjoyed the inclusion of the covering HBCUs during this course. That was an unexpected and welcomed area of content. This course was very inspiring and I learned so much!

I really appreciated the videos, readings, and the reflection activities each week. I feel like I got a lot out of the course! It was sometimes unclear to me which discussion thread I should work in-when there were multiple listed with the same heading and different dates--sometimes the dates didn't seem to line up with the dates for that week--but that was the only piece that threw me sometimes. Other than that the course was very easy to follow. Thank you!

Excellent course, especially the masterful instructor Dr. John C. Burkhardt. I am very glad I took this course and will watch several of the videos again. I learned far more than I expected. Every leader in higher ed should take this course. A few areas for improvement: Some of the readings are way too long and of questionable value. Some material needs to be updated to stay current with the latest DEIA issues. The platform "Coursera" was clunky.

Great intro course and awesome practical suggestions to improve EDI in your own institution. Especially good content addressing issues of race and racism within higher education in a North American context.

This was a useful introductory course. It could be improved by adding current research, current stories, and current changes in policy and practice.

Great information and instructor. My only comment would be to update some course materials (one reading mentioned the use of CD ROMS)

Very informative course with useful knowledge about diversity and equity. The course was well organised and introduced from the historical stories about diversity and equity in higher education. Although there are so many readings, the tools and knowledge introduced in the course were very effective.
