Kathy Collins: Change at a large
institution is as unique as change at a
small institution; it is navigating how
the change happens that I have found
to be where a majority of time is spent.
Similar to smaller schools, change
comes from every direction; it could
be a top-down change or a change
initiated through student advocacy.
Regardless of where change begins,
how the change is implemented,
communicated, assessed, and
improved upon can be the most
critical factor. The uniqueness of the
larger institution is the magnification

of the layers in terms of stakeholders
both internal and external to the
organization that could or could not
be involved in your department’s
change – and all of this takes time in
an organization that is in a state of
perpetual change around you.

Sanzone: Barb, I completely agree
with your sentiments. I also think
the timing of change and the ability
to anticipate all of the ripples of
decisions to make change can be more
complicated at larger schools. It’s
not that similar domino effects don’t

happen everywhere, but the size of
the institution often complicates how
messages get communicated, and
there are often many unanticipated
ripples because it’s impossible to
have all affected parties present
when decisions are being made.
Staff in leadership positions have to
be strategic about who is involved
in making decisions about change
because having too many people
really slows down the process from
happening. This can sometimes
keep those in entry-level positions
from understanding the full picture.
