What does a chief of staff do in the higher education industry?

  1. The culture and structure of higher education is very specific. You need to be creative to get stuff done but with a realistic perspective on the structure and culture of the institution.
  2. Accelerate into the curve. It’s hard to understate the importance of consensus in higher education. Starting slow and building support around a project will help you move quickly later.
  3. Remember the why. Find ways to interact with students regularly. It puts all of the day-to-day administrative frustration into perspective.
