Women's Leadership institute (WLI)

The Women's Leadership Institute is intended for women who are preparing for higher education senior leadership positions.  The Institute is designed to engage women in evocative dialogue regarding the complexity of issues facing higher education. 

With senior higher education leaders serving as discussion leaders, mentors, and facilitators, program participants will gain a broader perspective and understanding of the critical issues facing higher education. In addition, participants will use the Leadership Practices Inventory (LPI) to assess leadership strengths and areas for development, building a Personalized Leadership Plan to create a long-term strategy for continued growth.  Institute graduates will be better prepared for the many challenges and opportunities that leadership positions present in higher education.
