ISLA: International Summer 2012 Leadership Academy
Increasing globalization, economic downturns, and market fluctuations have resulted in the increase in the numbers and relevance of community colleges and other short-cycle higher education institutions and programs. The need for effective leadership in these institutions has never been greater, yet there are few training programs designed to prepare senior leaders. The International Summer Leadership Academy collaborates with institutions in Europe to provide a global perspective on topics relevant to short-cycle institutions today. Its pedagogical approach combines classroom-learning from experts in given areas with workshops, multi-cultural immersion, and interactive peer learning. The Academy is designed to enhance the professional growth of current administrators through exposure to European higher education policymakers, institutional leaders, short-cycle higher education experts, and professional associations, as well as through seminars, workshops, case studies, and involvement in a global network of short-cycle higher education institutions.
