Registration is open and dates set for the coming year for two of ACE’s executive leadership development programs, the ACE Institute for New Chief Academic Officers and Advancing to the Presidency.
ACE Institute for New Chief Academic Officers
The 2013-14 class of the ACE Institute for New Chief Academic Officers will kick off its yearlong immersion into practical leadership development with a session in St. Louis, MO, July 31-Aug. 2, 2013. The other dates for the 2013-14 class are Jan. 9-10, 2014, in Tucson, AZ, and June 19-21, 2014, in Alexandria, VA (suburban Washington, DC).
Designed for chief academic officers (CAOs) in their first three years on the job, the Institute is a highly participatory program. ACE selects up to 35 new CAOs to participate and invites experienced CAOs and presidents to serve as facilitators.
Institute sessions include case studies presented by program participants, panel discussions with experienced CAOs, conversations with peers and briefings by national experts. The goals of the Institute are to identify specific issues of immediate concern to new academic vice presidents and to generally prepare, support and inspire new CAOs.

Advancing to the Presidency
Meanwhile, applications also are now available for the next Advancing to the Presidency workshop, scheduled for Oct. 9-10, 2013, in Washington, DC.
Advancing to the Presidency is designed specifically for senior administrators, typically at the dean level or above, who will be seeking a presidency within the next two years.
The intensive two-day workshop prepares aspiring presidents in areas such as effective presidential search strategies, contract negotiation and transitioning successfully into a presidency. ACE will select approximately 35 individuals representing diverse backgrounds and different institutional types to participate.
