Time Running Out to Apply for 2014-15 Institute

​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.”

New college and university leaders from all sectors of higher education can apply for the 2014-15 ACE Institute for New Presidents, which is designed specifically for presidents in their first three years of service, by clicking here.

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 ACE Institute for New Presidents provides attendees with:

  • Insights and lessons about the leadership challenges faced by new presidents.
  • Practical advice on how to form and manage a highly effective executive team.
  • An extended professional network of fellow presidents from a cross-section of institutions.

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.

A limited number of scholarships are available to help institutions defray the cost of participation.
