Scholarship Available for the Association of College Unions International (ACUI) 2017 Women's Leadership Institute
The ACUI will host its annual women’s leadership institute for women of all ages to come together to learn and network with one another, form a stronger community in the college and university environment, and become empowered to pursue higher-level positions within their respective fields. The program is co-produced by members of the Council for Higher Education Management Association.
Held on December 3 through 6, 2017, at the Ritz-Carlton Amelia Island near Jacksonville, Fl, this institute is the premier program for university women leaders. The program is held at a resort-style location to maximize learning and minimize distractions, and is designed for women who aspire to new leadership positions on campus. The institute features a curriculum with an overall focus on building the next generation of leaders in higher education administration and student affairs.
The program will bring together administrators from several university functions to help you:
- Hone your leadership skills in a rapidly changing environment
- Develop a better understanding of the university as a workplace and culture
- Share experiences with others about how universities are adapting and adjusting to the new reality
- Create new personal networks and networking skills to better tap into the higher ed community
