The Leadership Team

Introducing the Chief Officers


The Challenge

Unity College is poised for good things—hopefully great things—but only if we identify the work, engage and trust each other, and remember why we’re here.  Unity requires that everyone stays connected to a single purpose.  Unity requires everyone to do their part, trust that others will do theirs, and have opportunities to lead.  Unity requires that we all make a commitment to the success of this small, but increasingly important, institution.

The Solution

In the spirit of functional leadership in abundance, the new Unity College organizational structure is based on functionality and driven by data.  Several chief officers serve as the senior leadership team and will have first-among-equals responsibility in their area of focus.  Everyone on campus will report, ultimately, to one of several chief officers from within departments.
