Power-Based Faculty and Student Affairs Student-Centered Collaboration Model

Track: Organizational Behavior & Theory

Keywords: Collaboration, power bases, team, students, faculty, higher education

Power affects collaboration because powerful people have the potential to influence others and to achieve common organizational objectives. In this paper, we present a new theoretical framework to examine how faculty and student affairs can collaborate together to effectively enhance student success by utilizing their unique power bases. This Power-Based Faculty and Student Affairs Student-Centered Collaboration Model is a five-stage model that demonstrates how faculty and student affairs administrators’ legitimate, coercive, expert, reward, and informational power bases intersect, resulting in collaborative initiatives that facilitate student learning through projects applying theory to practice. We describe how this model was operationalized in Fall 2015 through a pilot collaborative initiative called “Leadership in the Real World.”
