The Change Dashboard is a visual planning and communication tool for change agents working in higher education. The Dashboard articulates the key tactics of an action plan to get from the current state to the desired state. It visually scaffolds change agents to articulate gaps between a project's current and desired states and develop tactics that are aligned with the goals and with one-another. The Change Dashboard is thus similar to a logic model, but aligned with systemic change scholarship. In this document we will introduce each part and prepare you to use the Dashboard with your team. The Dashboard is free to use and share with attribution.

Planning and Institutionalizing Change
This summer, ASCN partnered with the Association of Public and Land-Grant Universities (APLU) to organize the 2017 SMTI/ASCN Workshop on Diversity and Inclusion. This report captures the ideas discussed and new understandings developed during the workshop. Four cases were analyzed by ASCN Working Groups and used to stimulate discussion amongst all participants on what is working or not on their campuses. These cases are included in this publication.
