Eduventures Launches Initiative to Expand Research on Higher Ed Transformation

Eduventures, which specializes in research and consulting for higher education, has launched a research concentration titled the Academic Leadership Learning Collaborative. The new initiative is designed to help college and university presidents and other executives understand and address campus-wide transformational issues.

This is the eighth "Collaborative" launched by the firm, which performs member-based research to help subscribers identify generally accepted management practices, benchmark performance and improve the functioning of operations across campuses. Other areas of focus cover continuing and professional education, development, enrollment management, online higher education, schools of education, student affairs and summer sessions.

As part of the new concentration, the company will provide research and analysis as well as decision-making support on themes such as faculty development and support; faculty measurement and compensation; curricular innovation, learning outcomes and assessment; and academic affairs and student success.

According to Brent Keltner, senior VP, the initial research is expected to compare and identify effective practices for working with adjunct faculty; to identify benchmarks in total faculty compensation for a variety of positions and academic units; to collect and compare effective assessment strategies used by universities and colleges at the program and major level; and to evaluate the impact of lower student-to-faculty ratios on student outcomes and academic engagement.
