Are you a new chief academic officer (CAO) looking to gain leadership skills and grow your network? Is there a new provost on your campus who would benefit from a community of fellow executive administrators?
If yes, then consider applying to the ACE Institute for New Chief Academic Officers, which helps provosts within their first three years of service transition into the role and gain skills to achieve long-term success. The 2018-19 cohort will develop into a community of professionals with which members can engage throughout their careers.
The institute comprises three highly participatory sessions over a nine month period. The sessions include discussions facilitated by experienced CAOs and presidents, case studies presented by program participants, conversations with peers from diverse institutions, and briefings by national experts. The goal is to identify topics and issues of immediate concern to academic vice presidents, provide the means to address them, and establish a concrete network of peers to whom attendees can reach out in the future.
July 25-26, 2018 – Washington, DC
November 28-29, 2018 – Phoenix, AZ
March 9, 2019 – Philadelphia, PA
Acceptance to the institute means you plan to attend all three sessions. CAOs and provosts from all sectors of higher education can apply for the 2018-19 cohort until June 20.
Limited partial scholarships are available to defray the cost of the program fee for those who would not otherwise be able to attend. You must complete and submit both program application and scholarship application by May 21 to be considered.
