As a founding rector of a new institution establishing itself as a fully Flipped university, both the university and I found ourselves in a unique position. Instead of a challenging, change-management process whereby buy in was needed from each stakeholder, all the staff, instructors, and students that started at MEF had come knowing that the education would be Flipped and had agreed to be a part of this approach. From a leadership point of view, this was indeed a privileged position to be in. However, it does not mean that there were not some teething problems along the way. Three main issues arose during the first year including; instructors’ expectations and the clarity of the MEF vision; issues related to the physical infrastructure; as well as questions about assessment.
