Who should attend?

This Leadership Institute is designed for those in the role of Presidents, CEOs and Directors General. This intensive program designed and delivered by college and institute Presidents/Directors General will provide participants an opportunity to share and network with peers from across the country while building leadership skills.

Key areas will be examined, including:


  • leadership – self-assessment and skills assessment;
  • key contextual issues facing Canadian college/institute presidents;
  • the key elements and challenges of this role – multiplicity of presidential roles;
  • internal and external roles/responsibilities/accountability of the president; and
  • role of the president and the board of governors.

Early registration is encouraged for a maximum of 30. We also welcome participants from non-member institutions or other organizations.


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
