Feb. 15, 2019 is the deadline to nominate candidates for the next cohort of participants in the Western Academic Leadership Academy, a yearlong professional development program for WICHE-region aspiring chief academic officers.
The Academy consists of a three-day seminar in Boulder, Colo., followed by webinars, mentoring, and other activities over the year with guidance from Academy faculty (all sitting or recently retired provosts) and guest experts on fundraising, budgeting, diversity, legislative relations, and other topics. The Academy was launched in 2014 to help expand the pipeline of deans and other leaders prepared to advance to a chief academic officer position. Candidates must hold a position of dean or higher at a Western Academic Leadership Forum member institution. Submit nomination materials to Pat Shea, director of academic leadership initiatives.
