Advance Your Academic Leadership Skills

Higher education today is experiencing significant change, whether to curricula, technology, tenure practices, issues in student affairs, recruitment, or retention. At the same time, institutions are challenged with increased scrutiny from the academic community, accreditors, students, and parents. More than ever, effective and flexible academic and administrative leadership is critical to any institution’s success.

The Leadership in Higher Education Conference was created to bring much-needed professional development resources to academic leaders. In a collaborative gathering of higher education professionals, we examine trends, strategies, and best practices through a combination of plenary presentations, concurrent sessions, poster sessions, and roundtable discussions.
