Advancing to the Presidency

Advancing to the Presidency is a workshop on successful presidential search and transition.

Designed specifically for senior administrators (typically Dean level or above) who will be seeking a presidency within the next 2 years, this 2-day workshop focuses on:

  • Developing an effective presidential search strategy
  • Practical training, including mock video-taped interviews and CV/resume critiques
  • Gaining a better understanding of the search process through candid conversations with search firm executives
  • Contract negotiation
  • Transitioning successfully into a presidency
  • Presidential leadership
