Provost's Discovery Themes Lecturer Program: Nancy Zimpher
Event: January 28, 2020. In the deep land-grant tradition, service to community is at the core of that amazing legacy. But the shift from largely rural populations to pervasive city demographics presents a transformative opportunity for those large public universities who live and serve there. We have learned much from early adopters of the anchor institution concept of urban-serving universities. But not enough that we can’t adopt a larger commitment to urbanity, not as ancillary to our mission but rather, fundamental to our future. Such opportunities require shared leadership and place-based investments, often referred to as “collective” theories of leadership, shared goals, actions and individual responsibility in order to actually make significant and long-lasting change for the better.Learn More
