Leading Engagement During Executive Leadership Transitions
An Engagement Academy Seminar
Tuesday, September 20, 2022 | 8:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
At a Glance Schedule
Turnover of higher education executives is on the rise and expected to increase as the COVID-19 pandemic subsides. Among those institutions applying for the most recent classification of the Carnegie Community Engagement Classification, nearly 75 percent of applicants reported turnover in presidential and/or chief academic officer positions. These transition periods create uncertainty for leaders that seek to sustain engagement as an institutional priority. What can leaders do to keep engagement on the radar as new executives assume their roles? During this interactive pre-conference seminar, participants will engage with literature, video testimonies of engagement leaders, and a case study that explore ways to sustain engagement through executive leadership transitions.
The Engagement Academy instructors for this pre-conference seminar are:
- Lorilee R. Sandmann, Professor Emerita, Department of Lifelong Education, Administration, and Policy, University of Georgia
- David J. Weerts, Professor and Faculty Director, Office for Public Engagement, University of Minnesota - Twin Cities
- Rena Cotsones, Chief Engagement Officer and Senior Associate Vice President, Outreach, Engagement and Regional Development, Northern Illinois University

This pre-conference workshop will provide the opportunity to connect with other outreach and engagement professionals while exploring our boundary-spanning roles in today’s higher education landscape.
The OEPN is a community of practice for university staff, non-tenure-track faculty, and community partners. These outreach and engagement professionals — or “boundary spanners” — develop and sustain relationships between higher education institutions and community partner organizations by facilitating, managing, directing, and administering ongoing projects, programs, services, and research.
