​The 2014-15 ACE Institute for New Presidents will feature sessions and networking opportunities for the spouses and partners of Institute participants.

The programming for spouses and partners is designed to prepare them for their roles on campus and in the community. As part of that programming, they can attend a spouse/partner-only panel, and listen in on a session on presidential lifestyles.

New college and university leaders from all sectors of higher education can apply for the Institute, which is designed specifically for presidents in their first two years of service.

The Institute is a nine-month program consisting of three in-person meetings. The initial session for the 2014-15 class will take place July 15-17, 2014, in Portland, OR. Other meeting dates are Dec. 2-4, 2014, in Nashville, TN, and March 13-14, 2015, during ACE’s 97th Annual Meeting in Washington, DC.

The program is highly participatory, incorporating interactive panels, 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 presidents and other senior leaders and experts in the field.

The preliminary agenda for the July meeting also includes:

  • An ACE-hosted opening networking reception on July 15 for all participants.
  • Sessions on working well with your board of trustees, how to build an effective team, crisis planning and understanding media relations.
  • A July 16 evening reception and dinner.

ACE encourages presidents from all institutional types to apply. Click here for the online application.
