Colleges seeking ongoing support for large-scale change choose to work with NCII over a longer term. This type of work often builds on a short-term engagement.
In a long-term engagement, NCII collaborates with college leaders to customize a support model that fits the college’s needs. The approach can include on-site visits, virtual coaching for design and implementation teams, professional development, and tailored resource development.
Long-term engagements must be at least six months, and they typically last two years, although they can extend even longer. Whatever the timeframe, we conduct extensive work with executives and redesign leaders including faculty, staff, and administrators. The college builds on its existing efforts and works toward making institutional change at scale so it can deliver on its promise to help each student succeed.
Colleges with long-term engagements have unlimited access to the NCII Design Toolkit, which provides a variety of proprietary resources that colleges use to identify improvement ideas and design a plan for implementing them. In addition, they are invited to periodic webinars featuring leading-edge redesign issues.
