"Higher Education Administration in the 21st Century - The Cornell Model." The talk will take a look at some of the challenges facing higher education administration in the coming years and how Cornell might address them with examples. Specifically, I will look at issues around planning, employee development, emerging new administrative goals and the structural changes required to adapt to these new challenges in a decentralized environment. The talk will also focus in on the evolving role that employees can play in helping management affirm goal statements and set reasonable benchmarks to assess organizational progress.
