CICan Leadership Institute for Deans, Directors and Campus Principals

June 24 - 29, 2023 | All Day

Who should attend

This Leadership Institute is designed for those in the roles of dean, director (in academic, administration, finance, and student services departments), and campus principals who are looking to progress in their careers and aspire to become vice-presidents.

Key areas will be examined, including:

  • leadership – self-assessment and skills assessment;
  • the environmental context in which institutions currently exist;
  • executive management expectations;
  • governance;
  • building a leadership team; and
  • the key elements and challenges of the vice president role.

It was an exceptional learning experience, and one of the best opportunities I have ever had to connect with colleagues from institutions across the country. Thank you for everything you did to make this leadership institute so memorable.

Kathy Siedlaczek, Associate Dean, Academic Planning & Quality Assurance British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT)
