Managing Planning, Managing Change: Transforming the Academic Landscape
Hear Ye, Hear Ye - join us in a call to academic arms at the College of William & Mary in Colonial Williamsburg, the cradle of American democracy, March 6–8, 2011, to become engaged in Managing Planning, Managing Change: Transforming the Academic Landscape.
President Thomas Jefferson, a graduate of the College of William and Mary, once said,
As that becomes more developed, more enlightened, as new discoveries are made, new truths disclosed, and manners and opinions change with the change of circumstances, institutions must advance also, and keep pace with the times. We might as well require a man to wear still the same coat which fitted him when a boy, as civilized society to remain ever under the regimen of their barbarous ancestors.
-- to Samuel Kercheval, July 12, 1810
Continuing our approach and using the feedback from last year's conference, we will encourage discussion and active participation on managing change and its impact on planning and the development of strategic vision. How are we providing for the resources and infrastructure required for an academic institution in the 21st century? How do we ensure the type and quality of learning facilities needed to explore, teach, and learn NOW to strategically place the institution in a competitive light for prospective faculty, students, and staff? How do we incorporate and maintain sustainable operations and emerging green technologies as we plan? How do we motivate both leaders and followers, rein in competing interests, get true buy-in, and truly implement effective planning that transforms our campuses and industry?
Plan to attend the 2011 Mid Atlantic Conference at the beautiful and historic campus of the College of William & Mary in Colonial Williamsburg, VA. We promise this to be an informative, educational, and cultural conference to date, with boundless opportunities for networking and active participation. After all, it was Jefferson himself who stated, “He who knows best, knows how little he knows.” Come share your experience and expertise with others interested in transforming the academic landscape.
From the moment you step into the opening plenary session until the closing session two days later, you will be involved, engaged, informed, and energized by this interactive program.
