To rise to the oncoming challenges facing community colleges, presidents have expressed an urgent need: an empowered cabinet that helps lead strategic change.
In an increasingly volatile higher ed landscape, cabinet members are no longer tasked only with running an efficient department and successfully completing transactional tasks that keep the ship afloat; they now have to look up and think strategically about where their department and institution is heading. However, this is a new way of doing business for cabinets, and many are unsure of their roles and how to go about fulfilling them.
To meet these challenges, cabinet members must develop new strategic thinking skills, lead change across campus, and build infrastructures that support sustainable strategic transformation. To guide cabinet members in this shift in thought and responsibility, EAB’s Strategic Advisory Services for Community Colleges is pleased to provide the Strategic Cabinet Resource Center.
These expert insight pieces and toolkits guide cabinets through each step of this process of transformation.
