Disco week 7 change

Paper, Order, or Assignment Requirements

Effective leadership in higher education requires the support of key stakeholders. Support needs to be solid to enact real change and support does not come unless a leader can effectively convince that a change is really needed. Buller states “Your argument for change is far more effective when you can demonstrate that change is needed rather than merely desired” (p.71).

For this paper, you engage in a debate similar to the practice of academic policy debate to argue for or against a proposed change in higher education.

Proposed Change: Raising the Cost of Education


Review required reading from this module, specifically, the section “The Central Role of the Needs Case in Change Leadership” (pp. 71–78).

Use the stock issues format presented in the Buller text (p. 72). Provide a statement for Harm, Inherency, Solvency, and Disadvantages to communicate to your opponent why change is necessary.
What are the emotional considerations of this change topic and how can a leader manage emotions within the institution.
