The LEAD program provides emerging leaders the opportunity to gain valuable leadership skills, network with leaders and colleagues across campus and create individual career development plans. Participants are nominated by their senior leadership or by an approved self-nomination form, and 25 are selected for each annual cohort.

The Program Includes:

  • Learning sessions led by institution senior leaders on key topics in higher education;
  • Individual career development plans based on a 360 feedback assessment tool, emotional intelligence inventory, and accompanying coaching sessions;
  • Individual mentoring;
  • Participation on and presentation of a strategic team project sponsored by senior leadership.

Nomination Process:
Participants are nominated by Vice Presidents and Deans across campus by September 30, 2022. The Participants are notified by the end of November and the program begins in January, 2023 and runs through December, 2023.

*While participation in the program does not guarantee promotion or advancement, it prepares colleagues for possible future leadership roles and offers opportunities for personal and professional development. Please be aware that as part of the LEAD program each participant will receive several leadership assessments. The cost of these assessments, $357 per participant,  is paid for by the participant’s department.
