Thursday morning 8:30 am–12:00 pm
Michele DiPietro—Kennesaw State University, Kennesaw, GA, USA
During the pandemic, many centers struggled—burnout, meaninglessness, uncertainty. A visioning process helped our center rediscover our identity and purpose. Unsatisfied with corporate models, we modified them to fit our context, incorporating insights from historically marginalized voices. The result was an inclusive, bottom-up, holistic process. We have used the process for our own organizational identity statements (mandate, vision, mission, and values), as well as to guide other academic units in their own visioning process. In this interactive pre-conference workshop, participants will experience the key steps of the process and discuss adaptations to their institutional context.
