The ACE Institute for New Presidents yields benefits both for presidents in their first three years of service and their boards.
“University presidents are faced with the daunting challenge of balancing competing demands and priorities with a rapidly increasing scope of responsibilities,” says Jack L. Fortner, president of the University of New Mexico Board of Regents. “Programs like the (ACE) Institute for New Presidents are a valuable tool for both new and sitting presidents, and stand to provide significant value to university leaders and their boards alike.”
