Given the continuing concerns over COVID-19 and in keeping with the recommendations of public health officials to avoid large gatherings and limit non-essential travel, we have made the difficult decision to postpone for another year this summer’s Leadership Institutes to June 2022. Registered participated will be contacted and are eligible for a full refund or transfer of registration fees to summer 2022.
Leadership Institutes scheduled to take place in November 2021 will continue as planned unless otherwise noted. Our primary concern has been, and will always remain, the health and well-being of our members, participants, and partners.
Who should attend
This Leadership Institute is designed for those currently in the role of manager, program chair, associate dean, or associate director, who seek to develop their leadership abilities, progress in their careers, and better understand the global trends that are having an impact in their current position.
Key areas will be examined, including:
- leadership (self-assessment and skills assessment);
- the environmental context: changes and challenges for institutions;
- moving from a program focus to a broader institutional focus: management vs leadership;
- senior management expectations;
- team relationships and building team capacity;
- leading in a unionized environment;
- the value of mentorship and coaching: for self and for a team; and,
- the key elements and challenges of the dean/director roles.
Early registration is encouraged for a maximum of 30 participants and to a maximum of 2 participants per college. Should space permit, an additional participant may be considered. We also welcome participants from non-member institutions or other organizations.

After participating in the CiCan Program Chairs Institute in 2019, I now understand why the event is so well-respected. It gave me an excellent opportunity to reflect on my own practice while at the same time offering the chance to connect with colleagues from across Canada. One of the most important things I learned was that we are not alone and we are all experiencing many of the same challenges (and successes!) regardless of our institutional context. Do yourself a HUGE favour - enroll in this institute as soon as possible.
