Pathways to Institutional Change
This resource from the HHMI Capstone Institutions presents strategies for sustaining institutional change.
These strategies, resources, and example programs have been compiled to help change agents make and sustain successful institutional change. Many of the components of institutional change efforts are interwoven, and strategies for change can be drawn from multiple resources and themes. The examples of institutional change program models provide an array of tactics and techniques that can be applied to a diversity of change implementations.
The resources showcased here are a synthesis of material made available by the InTeGrate STEP Center project, the Accelerating Systemic Change Network , the Network of STEM Education Centers, Supporting STEM Success in a Liberal Arts Context, and Building Strong Departments.
