A Community of Practice is a group of people who share the same craft or profession and thus the same interest in a particular subject. These communities come together with the goal of gaining knowledge related to the area by way of sharing with the community.

The process of sharing information and experiences within the group results in an outcome where the members learn from each other, have the opportunity to develop themselves and make a greater impact within their institutions.

Benefits of Participating in a Community of Practice
  • Problem solving/brainstorming
  • Sharing information
  • Discussing development
  • Documentation projects
  • Visits
  • Mapping knowledge and identifying groups

NCCI is reviewing ways communities can connect online. For more information, please email info@ncci-cu.org

NCCI Communities of Practice

This community promotes change management best practices which include the mitigation of project pain points and the implementation of organizational changes in higher education.  This community is for those interested in learning more about managing change, those who already practice change management and those who sponsor change initiatives. We exchange ideas, lessons learned, best practices, and advice about change management.

This community provides space for internal consultants and others that apply broad-based knowledge and experience to help develop and implement strategic improvement plans in response to performance gaps across higher education systems. Members have the opportunity to share best practices, collaborate for ideas, and engage in discussion about challenges faced, solutions designed, and long-term sustainability of initiatives with our peers. We network to build relationships with our counterparts at other institutions as we navigate the broad changes affecting education.
