Registration is now open to apply for the upcoming class of the ACE Institute for New Chief Academic Officers, a yearlong program that gives CAOs in their first three years on the job the opportunity to immerse themselves in learning how to address key leadership and management challenges.
The Institute is a highly participatory program that meets three times during the year. Participants engage with seasoned CAOs and presidents, national experts, and other leaders on pressing topics CAOs face in their role. The goals are to identify issues of immediate concern to new academic vice presidents and provide the means to address them.
The 2014-15 Institute kicks off this summer with a July 15-17, 2014 session in Portland, OR. The other dates for the 2014-15 class are: Dec. 2-4, 2014 in Nashville, TN; and March 13-14, 2015, during ACE’s 97th Annual Meeting in Washington, DC.

The Institute also provides new CAOs with:
Different (and competing) perspectives from peers with different experiences.
A low-risk setting to test ideas.
An understanding of how common issues and challenges play out in different types of institutions.
An extended professional network of fellow CAOs from a cross-section of institutions.
