The Institute for Leadership Action in Higher Education sponsored by the NYC/LI Region of the ACE Women’s Network of New York inspires participants to create actionable plans that improve the likelihood of developing their full potential and achieving their most important professional career goals. Details include:
One Day Institute
Strategic planning is a key activity in higher education, used by institutions across the nation to successfully achieve change. In this unique and supportive working Institute, you will develop a one-year Individual Strategic Action Plan (ISAP) consisting of attainable action items that begin with your current position and culminate in your plan for short- or long-term career advancement. You will assess your own leadership style, skills and competencies and receive guidance in setting realistic goals and objectives that will lead to change in the immediate future, or lay the foundation for long term future action. The Institute will help you assess your career road map and identify what you must do now as well as throughout the development of your ISAP.
Eight-Month, Post-Institute Online Community
Strategic planning is only successful when the action items are realistic, regularly monitored, supported and flexible in the event that unexpected changes occur. Successful change depends upon regular monitoring of the ISAP to ensure ongoing progress. The Institute provides
Monthly Online Forum with Higher Education Guest Experts
Within higher education, remaining an expert just in your “job description” does not help professionals advance their careers. Career advancement is intimately tied to remaining apace of the latest local and national higher education trends in such varied areas as academic and student affairs, enrollment management, institutional advancement, administration and finance, human resources, institutional assessment, etc. Given the importance of possessing broader “global” knowledge, participants in the Institute will have access to administrators at all levels and positions across institutions in an engaging online forum where they will learn and ask questions about these conversations, how they emerge and how they leverage influence on campus.
Who Should Attend
The Institute is for women in higher education who are looking to advance in their careers presently or in the near future.
When: Friday, November 13th, 2015
Where: Stony Brook University Manhattan Campus
387 Park Avenue South between 27th and 28th Streets
Cost of Attendance: $250 (with a presale discount cost of $200).
This fee includes access to an eight month long institute, networking with other professionals, lunch, and institute materials.
