An individual university or state university system or an association of institutions may convene a strategic roundtable in conjunction with the Knight Collaborative (such roundtables meet for two day-long sessions scheduled six weeks apart to articulate the institution's core values and intended directions on a particular issue.)

20   Providing Useful Information for Deans and Department Chairs
Mary K. Kinnick. San Francisco: Jossey-Bass, 1994. The major purpose of this volume is to increase the attention institutional researchers give to the information needs of deans and department chairs. Higher education in the United States is in the midst of a major transformation. This process will reshape and reposition in fundamental ways higher education's role in the society. Deans and department chairs are pivotal change agents in this process. To survive, indeed to thrive, postsecondary education institutions must become more learner-centered and must redefine the nature and balance of valued faculty work. Institutional researchers can provide useful information to deans and chairs that will help them to understand changing student needs, to facilitate and assess student learning, to assess and understand faculty culture, and to redefine, assign, and assess faculty work. This is the 84th issue of the quarterly journal New Directions for Institutional Research.
