Public university systems are critical social and economic drivers that educate approximately three-quarters of the nation’s bachelor degree seeking students. Leaders are needed to harness the collective resources of the campuses to improve student success, address local and global challenges, and improve operational efficiencies. To achieve this goal, system and campus leaders need to work together to bring about the transformative change demanded by the current environment. Functioning as a high-performing team, system and campus leaders can rethink how the work gets done and bring new methods to bear to address major challenges.
The Leadership Academy is designed to support systems in the development of high performing teams that facilitate large-scale change, enhance campus and system performance, and scale best practices across multiple campuses.

What to Expect
In its inaugural year, this academy will focus on one of the highest priorities facing our systems and campuses: improving student success. Tools will be presented for leading and facilitating large-scale change initiatives using a multilateral approach, considering relationships between system and campus leaders as well as among the campuses themselves. Areas of exploration will include coordinated approaches to enrollment, retention, student mobility, and completion.
