Creating a Leadership Development Program

October 21–23, 2019
Hyatt Regency Dulles
Herndon, Va.

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.
