The preliminary agenda for the first meeting of the 2014-15 ACE Institute for New Presidents includes sessions on crisis planning and response and how to build an effective team. New college and university leaders from all sectors of higher education still have time to 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 effectively with your board of trustees, understanding media relations and the “presidential lifestyle.”
- A July 16 evening reception and dinner.
