Governance

The Kaleidoscope governance process was created to support healthy growth: engaging new partners, expanding the course designs, and increasing efficacy. To this end, we have created a Board that guides and facilitates growth, and a leadership team that is open to all participating organizations.

The Kaleidoscope Board

The Board is charged with guiding and facilitating healthy growth. The Board is elected by the Kaleidoscope Leadership Team, allowing the project to elect individuals from within or outside the community.

The Kaleidoscope Leadership Team (KLT)

The KLT is an open group. We encourage a senior academic leader from each partner institution to engage and participate. This group provides opportunities for sharing strategies and approaches, collaborating, and learning.

Virtual meetings are held monthly with each meeting providing a general project update, and a specific opportunity to delve into new strategies and initiatives. An annual face-to-face meeting supports deeper sharing and collaboration. The 2013 meeting is scheduled for June 5 – 6.
