Institute Overview

This program demonstrates the University's commitment to enhancing the capacity of current and emerging leaders. The curriculum consists of an academic year-long series of workshops, individual self-assessments, and collaborative discussions led by national leadership development experts.

Delivered completely online, workshops in leadership development will be complemented by programs with University leaders.

Since its launch in 2010, nearly 275 faculty and staff, including department heads, senior administrators, and other 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 facilitating these new opportunities. View the growing list of previous years' Fellows here.
