In Friday’s IHE, Elizabeth Simmons of Michigan State University shared some important insights into the ACE Fellows program. In addition, she includes a valuable list of other programs for people interested in pursuing executive-level positions in higher education.
Short-term programs for leaders at all levels are offered through the Harvard Institutes for Higher Education or the American Council on Education. There are training institutes aimed specifically at women or underrepresented minorities, such as Carnegie Mellon’s Leadership and Negotiation Academy, the HERS Institutes, or the ACESpectrum program. Finally, there are some yearlong programs with relatively moderate schedules, such as the CIC Academic Leadership Program or the Executive Leadership Academy, and comparable programs at the American Association of State Colleges and Universities.
