    Developing faculty into institutional leaders
    - A report from a session at the 2002 annual meeting of the Council of Colleges of Arts and Science, facilitated by PKAL leaders Jeanne Narum - Project Kaleidoscope, David Brakke - James Madison University and James Gentile - Hope College

  • What works: A PKAL essay
    Building a community of leaders: The PKAL F21 Experience
    - Jeanne L. Narum, Director - Project Kaleidoscope
    The challenge for leaders -- current and rising -- is to build an environment in which ideas flourish, are shared openly and freely, and where risks are taken, and the possibility of failure is acceptable: a community in which people of good faith have come together around a common vision and sense of purpose.
