This exciting, two-day conference kicks off an amazing, year-long mentoring program. The conference will include presentations by seasoned academic leaders sharing their expertise and experience. Each participant will join a mentoring group led by one of the speakers. Over the course of the next year, participants will meet quarterly with their mentor group to build a network of colleagues, and they will meet virtually one-on-one with their mentor on a regular basis to work on their personal plans for growth as academic leaders. Come prepared to have fun, learn, and network with other participants as you fine-tune your leadership skills and develop a personal plan for continued growth in your career.

 

Thank you so much! I appreciate the one-on-one connection and networking! I arrived at the conference feeling 'one step behind' as a leader/manager because I had just started my department head position this summer [and] I left feeling much more mentally prepared to lead our nursing program, so there was a maturity that happened in just two days!

Sessions


Sessions Menu


Day 1 (July 9)

Academic Leadership—What Does It Really Mean?
9:00–10:15

Leader, manager, mentor, counselor, mediator, and yes, sometimes even janitor. The roles are endless and sometimes the hours are as well. Together we will build a conceptual framework on which we can pursue success.

back to menu

Transformational Leader and Coach
10:45–12:15

The literature suggests transformational leadership creates environments that promote ownership, satisfaction, and organizational commitment. Being a transformational leader requires empowering, coaching, and facilitating growth...is that you?

back to menu

Lunch—Overview of Year-Long Mentoring Program
12:15–1:15

  • Professional mentoring as a strategy for success
  • Overview of individual and group mentoring goals
  • "What’s in it for me? What am I required to do?"
back to menu

Breakout Session 1
1:15–2:30

The Art and Science of Budget Development and Implementation

1A

Budgets can be a leader’s greatest challenge or best opportunity. Planning and implementing budgets is more than math. Budgeting requires planning, communicating, negotiating, and more communicating...with a little math on the side.

Learning Outcomes:


Critical Conversations: Dealing with Conflict

1B

Academic leaders are faced with new challenges daily, including generational diversity among both faculty and students. Having those difficult conversations requires a skill set that most new academic leaders do not bring to the table. In this session, case studies and role playing will provide opportunities for participants to experience and practice critical conversations.

Learning Outcomes:


Faculty Recruitment and Retention

1C

The US Department of Labor Statistics suggests that 34,200 new faculty will be needed by 2022 to replace the 10,200 current faculty who will retire and the 24,000 new faculty positions that will need to be added to meet enrollment demands. How will you recruit and retain quality faculty?

Learning Outcomes:


Identifying Faculty Development Needs

1D

An effective and engaged faculty is critical to program success. Developing strategies to help faculty stay current and relevant in rapidly changing practice and education environments is challenging. Leaders need a plan, resources, and return on investment.

Learning Outcomes:

Group Mentoring Meeting: Starting the Process
3:00–4:30

  • Build a leadership network.
  • Discuss common needs.
  • Develop an agenda for work.

Day 2 (July 10)

Leading and Following With Strengths and Values in Mind
8:15–9:30

Exploring ways to manage one’s identity, reputation, and legacy as an academic leader can be both a challenge and an opportunity. Recognizing your strengths and values allows you to capitalize on them in your role as both a leader and a follower.

back to menu

Developing High-Performing Teams
9:30–10:45

A leader without followers is just a person marching to his/her own drum. Effective leaders use sound building blocks to build teams that function collaboratively and have quality outcomes.
