Advancing Academic Leaders

Advancing Academic Leaders

Knowledge, skills, and approaches to successfully lead and enhance the climate in an academic organization.
 


Advancing Academic Leaders (AAL) is a leadership development program designed to support the continuous growth of leaders -- department chairs, program directors, coordinators and other academic leaders. This is a four-session interactive program that highlights the knowledge, skills and approaches to successfully lead and enhance the climate in an academic organization. Participants must commit to attend all four sessions. This leadership program builds on the successful Advancing Chairs as Leaders program (2016-18)

The Office of Engagement and Faculty Development, in cooperation with the Peter T. Paul College of Business and Economics and UNH Advance, is offering this faculty development program to build the knowledge, skills, and tools of academic leaders.
