How do you see your institution's culture? For presidents, board members, and institutional effectiveness officers, understanding how staff, faculty, and administration experience an institution's culture — its traditions, values, behaviors, and attitudes —can be a critical topic. Why? Because culture affects performance, engagement, retention, and satisfaction, all of which reflect on the student experience.
Join Rich Boyer, principal investigator of the Great Colleges to Work For program and founding partner of ModernThink LLC, as he discusses why assessing culture may be critical for success. He'll be joined by Jim Downey, vice president of planning and institutional effectiveness at Pittsburgh Theological Seminary, who will offer one perspective as a participant in the In Trust Center pilot of a customized cultural assessment tool for faculty and staff at theological schools.
