2017 Leadership Academy

AACTE's Leadership Academy is held each summer for new deans, department chairs, and other academic administrators looking to advance their careers. The Leadership Academy covers essential topics, from managing finite resources to effective development and public relations, while helping attendees cultivate a supportive network of peers.

The Leadership Academy helps participants meet the following goals:

  • Articulate critical components of leadership, including styles, motivations, and roles, and apply them to their own practice as leaders.
  • Build a comprehensive understanding of the multiple roles and functions of their appointed positions, particularly in an individual institutional context.
  • Strengthen key leadership skills, enabling them to more effectively serve as both a team leader and team member, manage time, communicate with diverse audiences, resolve conflicts, and deal with change.
  • Engage in discussions, via small-group settings and collective sessions, to forge networks with other professionals in similar leadership positions.
  • Understand the conflicting interests of scholarship and administrative responsibilities through professional and confidential discussions and interactions.
