Driving Innovation on Your Campus

To mark the occasion of its 10th anniversary in 2020, the Doctorate in Community College Leadership program at Ferris State University collected examples of innovative practices from alumni and faculty. The resulting 16 essays comprise their publication Enhancing Performance: A Best Practices Guide for Innovations in Community Colleges published by Rowman and Littlefield. During this webinar, five of the authors describe innovations from their institutions that were driven and supported by faculty.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Webinar participants learn best practices for involving faculty in innovative practices.
  2. Webinar participants learn specific examples of how to apply these practices at their own institutions to enhance teaching, learning, and student success.

The Doctorate in Community College Leadership (DCCL) program at Ferris State University (Michigan) focuses on developing leaders of mission-driven, 21st-century community colleges. Its hybrid cohort model has graduated more than 200 students, and its graduates represent over 100 colleges in 26 states. The webinar speakers include DCCL alumni Carmen Allen, faculty, Lincoln Land Community College (IL); Kris Hoffhines, associate dean, advising, Harper College (IL); Mike Couch, associate vice president, enrollment management, Martin University (IN); Tina Hummons, registrar, Sinclair Community College (OH); and Ruth Williams, assistant vice president, academic affairs, dean, curriculum and instruction, Oakton Community College (IL). Current DCCL staff members Megan Biller, program director, and Sandy Balkema, dissertation director, provide the introduction and conclusion to the webinar.
