Registration Now Available for Women’s Leadership Institute

ACRL is excited to once again collaborate with higher education associations to offer the 2012 Women’s Leadership Institute. Co-produced by several higher education associations, this unique program will bring together administrators from across campus functions to help you:

  • Hone your leadership skills for working in a rapidly changing environment
  • Develop a better understanding of the campus as a workplace and culture
  • Share experiences with others about how campuses are adapting and adjusting to new realities
  • Create new personal networks and networking skills to better tap the higher education community

Through presentations, small-group exercises, and discussion, you will gain a practical understanding of what it takes to be a leader on a college or university campus–both the challenges and the rewards. The program has the added benefit of bringing together women from administrative and student affairs functions across institutions of higher education. It provides a special opportunity to learn, not just about leadership skills, but about how other parts of the campus function, what their priorities and challenges are, and how to bridge the communication gap that may exist when we try to work across “cultures.”

The program is designed for women who aspire to become senior leaders in higher education. Current responsibilities should include administrative functions that regularly require decision making that affects departmental operations and involves other important relationships on campus.
