CU Discover: Higher Ed: A Whole Different Animal

What makes higher education different from other types of organizations and industries? What are the different employee “cultures” in an institution of higher education and what do they value? How are decisions made in higher ed? What do we mean by shared governance? Why does it take so long to get things done? These and many other questions about working in an institution of higher education will be answered in the October CU Discover lunch and learn program. Attendees are invited to bring a lunch for these interactive, informative sessions.

Presenter: Merna Jacobsen, PhD.:  Asst. Vice Chancellor & Deputy Chief HR Officer, and Director of Organization and Employee Development, Department of Human Resources
