Chief academic officers (CAOs) from all sectors of higher education can apply now for the 2017-18 ACE Institute for New Chief Academic Officers, which is designed specifically for CAOs in their first three years of service.
The Institute is a nine-month program consisting of three meetings that aim to identify topics and issues of immediate concern to new academic vice presidents and provide the means to address them.
Each convening is highly participatory, incorporating interactive panels with experienced CAOs, mini-case studies presented by program participants, conversations with peers from a range of institutions and briefings by national experts. Sessions are facilitated by experienced and highly successful CAOs and thought leaders.
“Becoming a new provost is a whirlwind—lots of excitement, and at the same time challenges coming at you from all sides. It’s great to get together with other new CAOs, and with a group of much more experienced academic professionals,” said Chuck Thorpe, senior vice president and provost at Clarkson University (NY). “Besides learning some useful tool and techniques, I also learned that I am not alone: others have also encountered, and keep encountering, most of the same issues. It’s great to have colleagues at other institutions with whom we can collaborate and share best practices.”
The first session for the 2017-18 Institute will take place July 25-27, 2017 in Washington, DC. Other meeting dates are Nov. 28-30, 2017 in Albuquerque, NM and March 9-10, 2018 in Washington, DC.
