Dr. Terrell Strayhorn on Belonging @ Work!

Dr. Terrell Strayhorn joins us in part 2 of our time together. Here are some of the things we covered:

  • How we should think about learning from multiple domains and disciplines (including business)…and the analogy of being a musician learning from other styles and instruments to create better music.
  • He calls out institutions with so-called “student-centered” mission statements and shares some of the ways you can point out potential red flags that demonstrate they are not there yet in living it out at a given institution.
  • He identifies a powerful way technology can be used to meet students where they are in getting them the information they need to succeed on a given campus.
  • How the future of work will require an entrepreneurial mindset of getting multiple “gigs”, and why higher education must adapt its model from a traditional curriculum to educational curation.
  • The importance of staff and faculty to feel like they belong and why it is the ONLY way an organization could move forward faster.
