Academic Leadership Academy
The Academic Leadership Academy is a project of the Bluegrass Higher Education Consortium (BHEC), a consortium of the 12 colleges and universities in the central Kentucky Region. The purpose of the ALA is to encourage faculty to consider leadership career paths and to provide guidance in developing the skill set necessary for effective institutional leadership. Successful applicants will have demonstrated academic leadership potential and should have an interest in pursuing academic leadership roles, but applicants need not have already provided University service as chair, director, or in senior college - or University - level positions to qualify for this program.
Dates for the two full-day sessions of 2020 Academic Leadership Academy are:
Session I: Friday, April 17 at Bluegrass Community & Technical College (location to be determined)
Session II: Friday, October 23 at Midway University
