This weekend I read a thought provoking article entitled “Leadership Legends and Lessons” found in the Chair Academy’s Winter 2016 issue. In the article, Paul Elsner, MCCCD Chancellor Emeritus provided the following insight “The luster and reputation of the Maricopa Community District was built on the second, third, and even fourth levels of the organization. So many national and internationally-known programs were conceived, inspired, and supported by faculty and then carried out by the many levels of staff.”
Elsner’s comments fully align with the PVCC operating value that “leadership resides throughout the organization” – otherwise known as all points leadership. This Spring we will confront a number of vexing and challenging issues such as: a) developing the 2016-2019 PVCC Strategic Plan, b) addressing our continued declining enrollment, c) fully operationalizing the Black Mountain site, and d) continuing to address equity gaps in educational attainment.
I need your leadership acumen and if you wish to become involved in any of these challenging issues, we will find a way to engage you.
