Upcoming ACE Leadership Programs Provide Opportunities for CAOs at Every Level

June 28, 2017


​Aspiring and seasoned chief academic officers (CAOs) have two opportunities to hone their leadership skills through upcoming ACE programs this fall.

ACE’s Advancing to the Chief Academic Office is a new two-day workshop designed specifically for mid-career administrators (typically at the department chair level or above) who will be seeking a CAO position within the next two years. Similar to ACE’s Advancing to the Presidency workshop, this program will focus specifically on the tools and skills necessary to ascend to the next level of college and university administration.

The workshop will be held Oct. 2-3​​ in Washington, DC. Please click here​ to apply. 

ACE’s Advancing to the Presidency workshop is designed for CAOs and other administrators at the dean’s level and above who are planning to seek a college or university presidency in the next several years. The aim of the program is to provide leaders with the tools and skills necessary to obtain a college or university CEO position, such as honing in on the types of institutions likely to be a good fit and developing a concrete presidential search strategy.

Participants can expect to receive practical training, including mock video-taped interviews and CV/resume critiques, obtain an understanding of the search process through candid conversations with search firm executives and learn the ins and outs of contract negotiation.

The workshop will be held Oct. 16-17 in Washington, DC. If you would like to be informed when registration opens, or would like more information on the program, please email​
