Executive Leadership Institute
The Executive Leadership Institute at the New England Conference for Student Success provides a rare opportunity to learn from talented and sought-after educators who are focused on student success. Open to both new and seasoned administrators, this program will allow participants to consult with experts while learning from each other as they consider the options available for their campuses.
At this year's Institute, participants will interact with our conference keynote speakers, Dr. Adrianna Kezar and Dr. Becky Wai-Ling Packard in small, focused workshops. Following the afternoon sessions will be a dinner with the presenters, facilitated by Dr. John V. Lombardi, director of The Center for Measuring University Performance. He is also the past president of the Louisiana State University System and former chancellor of UMass Amherst.
The Executive Leadership Institute takes place on the afternoon of Thursday, October 10th, the eve of the New England Conference for Student Success. Enrollment for the Institute is limited to 30 participants, which will allow for a high degree of interaction with the presenters as well as colleagues from around the region.
Who Should Attend?
The Executive Leadership Institute is intended for high-level campus administrators who are responsible for planning and assessing programs related to student success. While we are explicitly inviting CEOs to attend, we also encourage institutions to consider sending a pair of decision makers, e.g., chief academic officer, chief student affairs officer, and/or institutional research officer. This is a particularly good opportunity to have newer administrators learn alongside their more experienced counterparts.
