Academic Leaders from the University of Colorado Boulder developed in collaboration with Faculty Relations and Human Resources key competencies and associated behaviors that our leaders aspire to meet within their units. This unique set of competencies is what motivates our Academic Leaders Institute.
The Academic Leaders Institute (ALI) offers “competency-based” training to support, encourage and ensure the successful preparation of faculty for leadership roles. Building upon the insights and experience of effective campus leaders, the program identifies – and helps cultivate – the knowledge, skills, and personal qualities recognized as critical to effective departmental and campus leadership. This program serves Department Chairs and Associate Chairs, Progam and Institute Directors and associate Directors, Deans and Associate Deans, as well as other interested faculty. A menu of options to promote the growth and development of faculty leaders is available, ranging from those which help to create a pipeline to leadership, orientation for newly appointed campus leaders, and ongoing opportunities for developing current leaders. For further information, contact the Associate Director, Shelly Miller.
