The Fall Institute focuses on institutions intending to develop or enhance programs for faculty and administrator leadership development. This effort coincides with the work of AACP leadership to enhance leadership development programs within the Academy. Attendees will return to their institutions with an action plan to create or add to existing programs. Participants will gain an understanding of leadership characteristics and styles, identifying needs, forming successful teams, identifying and developing future leaders, dealing with change, and be provided with tools that will help contribute to the development of future leaders. Teams should be prepared to arrive with an understanding of their institution’s needs for leadership development.

Target Audience: 

This educational activity is designed for faculty, faculty administrators, deans, department chairs, and individuals interested in creating an institution plan for professional development.
