ADJUNCT FACULTY

ORGANIZATIONAL LEADERSHIP & CHANGE (OLC) PROGRAM

ONLINE INSTRUCTION

If you value People, Diversity, Social Justice, and Participatory Decision-Making, we’d like to hear from you!

Pacific Oaks' online M.A. in Organizational Leadership and Change (OLC) program is based upon the theory that leadership requires knowledge, skill, and deep self-knowledge to be authentic, and that authentic leadership is essential to creating organizations with sustainable value. Graduates from our Organizational Leadership and Change program will understand that establishing responsible and ethical relationships, valuing and respecting each individual, and leading with passion and purpose are all necessary to insure that organizations achieve goals that are aligned with the public good.

Through the development of management and leadership competencies grounded upon respect for human capacity, graduates will be prepared to become leaders of change, able to navigate the complexity and unpredictability of various organizations and to transcend cultural, political, and national barriers. Unlike a more traditional MBA, societal considerations are not relegated to theory, but integrated with the development of each competency, providing for a more dynamic understanding of how these considerations directly affect organizational needs.

A primary learning outcome of the Organizational Leadership and Change program, capacity for critical self-reflection and moral comprehension, helps guide leaders to bring social justice, advocacy, and respect for diversity and individualism into organizations and the world.

This culture-centered education emphasizes relevancy and strategy to managing a diverse workforce.

The Organizational Leadership and Change program is currently seeking outstanding leaders in the community to join our diverse pool of adjunct faculty for the Spring, Summer and Fall semesters. The adjunct faculty member will teach Organizational Leadership Masters level courses.
