Registration Now Open: 2023 Leadership Academy

 Registration is now open for AACTE’s Leadership Academy — a unique opportunity for deans, department chairs, and other administrators and faculty to enhance their leadership skills, address current issues, and build a professional peer network. Whether just beginning your career in academic leadership, or a seasoned and experienced leader with years of experience, this year’s Leadership Academy provides professional development that is essential and applicable to everyone, including a New Deans Academy:

  • Leadership Academy: Sunday, July 30 – Thursday, August 3, and 
  • New Deans Academy: Thursday, August 3 – Friday, August 4  

My biggest takeaway from my first Academy was the valuable insight into the experience of being a leader. I learned how leaders think, what they value, and what they strive to accomplish. At my second Academy, I learned how leadership changes in different roles or at different levels. Simultaneously, I became more aware of the similarities among leadership positions regardless of role or level. By the time I completed my third Leadership Academy experience, I felt I understood the different levels of leadership in a college. I have found this to be very helpful when coaching or mentoring department chairs and associate deans. —John Henning, member of AACTE’s Academy Faculty
