Summary

Thank you for your interest in the ACE Institute for New Chief Academic Officers. This program is conducted 3 times during the year: July, November, and March. It is designed to provide practical executive leadership development for CAOs in their first 3 years on the job. Our goals are to identify topics and issues of immediate concern to new academic vice presidents and provide the means to address them. Each session is highly participatory, using a combination of discussions facilitated by experienced CAOs and presidents, case studies presented by program participants, conversations with peers from diverse institutions, and briefings by national experts.
