I benefited from a well thought out program, enthusiastic and wise faculty, and amazing fellow presidents with great insights into the complexity and changing nature of the college sector. It was rewarding – professionally and personally – to spend the week with you and it reinforced how fortunate students are to have passionate and inspiring leaders directing institutions into a complicated future. International participation is a powerful addition to our program and I thank for your commitment. The social aspects of the program were special… and already looking forward to 2021!
Peter Devlin, President, Fanshawe College


I found the President Leadership Institute to be a powerful learning experience with both novice and seasoned serving Presidents from across Canada who offered much insight into the multitude of issues, challenges, and solutions that each President is dealing with and each of us had something to offer and take away as new learning... The session related to negotiating your next term contract was extremely meaningful and helpful and I look forward to more learning with and from my peers at next year’s President’s Leadership Institute.
