CICan 2022 Leadership Institutes – Call for Applications for Core Faculty

CICan Leadership Institutes Logo
Interested individuals are invited to apply to serve as “Core faculty” at the CICan Leadership Institutes.

Background

Leading in the ever-evolving landscape of post-secondary education requires strong skills and tools to be effective and successful. The CICan leadership institutes draw on the latest management concepts and experience to prepare participants to successfully lead in the college and institute system. The programs contribute to personal growth and institutional succession planning by looking at the competencies required to lead effectively in institutions of all sizes, addressing both career progression and the skills necessary to lead at a higher level.

Each institute is tailored to a different role or area of work and provides opportunities to learn from distinguished college and institute leaders. Participants are guided by a core group of faculties, and in some instances, guest faculty who contribute to segments. Central to the interactive environment is faculty’s sharing of their stories, knowledge, and experience to underline the skills needed to lead in higher education. Participants are encouraged to contribute actively throughout the program through team learning, coaching, assignments, etc. Opportunities to interact with colleagues from across the country create long-lasting networks that facilitate ongoing engagement and learning.
