Quinnipiac University College of Arts and Sciences

Selected for Harvard Institute

In Faculty, Research on March 26, 2013 at 4:06 pm


By Kathy Cooke, Professor of History 

I have been selected as a member of the Harvard University Institute for Management and Leadership in Education (MLE) Class of 2013. The MLE emphasizes the theme of “change.” In fact, a paragraph describing the program starts with the banal sentence, “change is difficult.” Upon reading this, my first response was, “don’t we know it!” The relentless, invigorating, and often exhausting pace of change at Quinnipiac certainly proves this point. With that in mind, I decided to apply for the summer class so that I could explore this theme of change with other administrators in higher education, and at the same time develop my leadership skills. However, I also look forward to learning to better understanding how administrative leadership thinks more generally. This will be useful as the Director of the University Honors Program, but also as a faculty member. I hope to bring back to CAS, and to the University more generally, additional insights about institutional strategy, change, inspiration, communication, and transformation. The program will be held from June 16-28, 2013, and is part of the Harvard University Graduate School of Education Institutes for Higher Education.
