This new ACE program is focused on attracting mid-level administrators from diverse backgrounds to increase diversity in the senior-level leadership ranks in higher education. The need for this purposeful programming is evidenced by their underrepresentation in senior leadership roles in higher education.
This 2-day program is for mid-level administrators (typically department chairs, directors, and assistant/associate deans) with high potential for advancement in higher education administration.
