Survey Results: What Surprised People When They First Started Working in Higher Ed | Inside Higher Ed | HigherEd Technology 2013 | Scoop.it

The most common response was shock around the politics.  Here are a few responses:

 

From an administrator: “The politics. You hear about it, but when it is seen and affects you for the first time, there is no way to be ready for it.”From someone who teaches and is an administrator: “I was surprised at first by the complexity and subtlety of institutional politics, both inside the faculty and between faculty and administration.”From someone in a business role: “POLITICS.”From someone who classified themselves as “other:” “The amount of office politics and territorial defensiveness.”

"The state legislature is requiring all community colleges in Virginia to hammer out such plans with their public school divisions by April. TCC got the ball rolling in December in a joint meeting with school leaders from Norfolk, Portsmouth, Chesapeake and Virginia Beach.


It went well, said Edna Baehre-Kolovani, the president of Tidewater Community College. She added she hopes the process will present opportunities for a positive side effect: finding ways to lower the number of students who land in remedial classes at TCC.


'I was really energized," she said. "I was very encouraged.'"
