Subject: Academic Leadership Institute for 2014-2015

Date: February 25, 2014

Recognizing that high-quality and innovative leadership is essential for the University of Arizona to achieve its aspirations, I am very pleased to announce that applications are now being accepted for the fifth cohort of the Academic Leadership Institute. 

This program demonstrates our commitment to enhancing the capacity of current and emerging leaders, and has been recognized as a national model. The Institute provides a year-long series of workshops, individual self-assessments, and collaborative discussions led by national experts in the area of leadership development. Day-long workshops are complemented by morning programs with leaders who provide unparalleled opportunities to learn more about what is going on across the university and throughout the state. 

Since its launch during the 2010-11 academic year, almost 100 current and emerging campus leaders have attended the Institute and have praised the program in the highest possible terms. A significant number of Institute fellows have been tapped to lead key projects and promoted into new leadership roles, and many point to the Institute as opening these new opportunities. 

Applications are due Thursday, March 27, 2014 and must include a letter of support. For more information, visit: This website includes lists of the graduates of the Academic Leadership Institute. Their contributions provide the best evidence of just how valuable this opportunity has been.

I hope you will consider applying for this career development opportunity.
