This program is designed to support small teams of faculty as they implement positive change concerning issues of climate and diversity. Through a combination of interactive workshops and individual assistance from change consultants (bios ), the program supports faculty to plan and implement a change successfully. It will offer best practices based on research and on the experiences of successful change projects implemented at U-M.
Examples of team projects:
Step by step assistance in the design and implementation of the team project helps to avoid the difficulties that derail many change efforts and keeps the process moving at a steady pace. This customized assistance will include identification of resources and barriers, overcoming resistance to change, assessment of risks and benefits, and the application of effective strategies and tactics.
2016-2017 Program Schedule
Each team will also meet with a consultant throughout the program to assist with application of principles to their project design and implementation. Teams may be composed of a minimum of three people, and the recommended maximum is five members. The teams may include staff and, in some circumstances, students, but must be faculty-led.
Up to $5,000 is available to each team. This resource can be used to cover the cost of data collection, climate surveys, focus groups, additional consultant time, or the one time purchase of new resources.
