Program on Academic Leadership

By informing and equipping faculty about how different areas of our University work, we facilitate their ability to more effectively lead at all levels across campus.

The Program on Academic Leadership (PAL) helps participants increase their individual leadership abilities; understand better the complexities of university administration, operations, and governance; enhance their familiarity with seemingly “hidden” aspects of the University and higher education; and supports the development of more satisfying and effective leadership at all levels of university service. Along the way, participants will develop a network of colleagues across the institution who will be partners and friends to consult on any variety of opportunities and challenges.

PAL offers a unique opportunity for individual career development and an enhanced ability to contribute to a stronger community and university. PAL meets 6-7 times per term, usually with expert facilitators and/or experienced leaders.
