“This important volume locates a key player – the faculty development professional – in the distributed leadership needed for institutional change.

Recognizing that a necessary and significant role change is underway in faculty development, this book calls for centers to merge their traditional responsibilities and services with a leadership role as organizational developers. Failing to define and outline the dimensions and expertise of this new role puts centers at risk of not only marginalization, but of dissolution.
Proposing a newly defined organizational development role for academic and faculty developers, and directors of teaching and learning centers, the authors describe how significant involvement in broader institutional change initiatives is becoming a critical aspect of this work.
Based on extensive research, this book constitutes a guide for faculty developers to re-examine the mission and structure of their centers, or to design new centers, and, most importantly, to develop their role as change agents.
