When Is It Time For a Living Wage Policy?

Examine the latest research results on the prevalence and nature of living wage policies in American higher education and their impact on organizational performance and institutional reputations. Understand the critical leadership and ethical issues they raise and how to brief key stakeholders on the business and ethical issues surrounding them. Explore what a living wage policy may or may not mean for your institution and consider the risks of inattention to social sustainability on campus in an age of increasing expectations for transparency regarding social justice in campus employment. Learn how to positively engage trustees, fellow senior administrators, employees, contractors and students.
