I am a new dean (but not a new administrator). Colleagues and previous attendees encouraged me to attend the Academy to help me grow in my new role. Several of them shared that the Academy helped them develop a network of support that has been instrumental in their success.

I attended the Academy a few years ago when I was a new department chair. I recall it being one of the most helpful professional developments since entering higher ed.  Now that I have moved into a higher level of administration, I felt the Academy could be a great professional development refresher.
