Shared Equity Leadership


​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ACE’s work on shared equity leadership, developed in partnership with the Pullias Center for Higher Education​ at the University of S​outhern California, describes the broadly inclusive and collaborative leadership approaches that are necessary to achieve equitable outcomes in higher education.

In the shared equity leadership framework, a greater number of individuals engage in leadership across an institution and leverage multiple perspectives and expertise to transform conditions of campus inequity. The idea of this framework, informed by studying leaders at different types of institutions, is that broadly distributing leadership responsibilities and accountability helps equity work become less marginalized.
