Dear Colleagues –
I am sending this message to NACUA General Counsel whose institutions are members of the Council of Independent Colleges (CIC). The attached information regarding the 2011-12 Executive Leadership Academy describes a year-long program that prepares Cabinet-level administrators to become college Presidents. Forty participants from all areas of the institution will be chosen, twenty from CIC institutions and twenty from AASCU (American Association of State Colleges and Universities) institutions. The program includes two seminars in Washington DC. The President to whom the Cabinet officer reports must nominate the candidate and the link to the form is referenced in the attachment.
The pending retirements of many college presidents over the next few years suggests that many paths to the Presidency must be considered. Those associations who run these leadership training programs welcome interest from General Counsel and other Cabinet-level officers. Please consider asking your President to nominate you if you are at all interested. Thanks.
NOTE: the deadline has been extended until June 6.
