On-Going Activities

The Baum Guiding Coalition is made up of faculty, staff, and students from across the university, intent on understanding the structures of and challenges facing higher ed, so we can innovate to thrive.  We spent the academic year 19/20 getting to know each other and build community, and reading John Kotter's book Leading Change.
