Academic development units are often subjected to institutional changes for transformation and needs to be responsive to needs of the institution, academic staff and students. In a recent major restructuring process the AD unit was once against subject to change. In order to include the voice of the developers and academics in a faculty led model for academic development an inclusive consultative approach was followed which is in line with the organizational culture. This evident by behaviors congruent with ethics, trust, care, robust engagement, teamwork at leadership level, valuing of diversity and transformation.
