Institute Description is here.
Lori Glover, CSAIL Partner and S4HE Expert Advisor, will be co-leading the Institute with S4HE Partners Amy Shachter and Karen Oates.

Institute ​participants ​will ​explore ​the ​practices ​of ​a ​values ​driven ​leader, ​one ​who can produce transformative ​change ​by ​creating ​an ​environment ​of ​honesty, ​truth, ​and ​trust. Whereas ​other ​academic ​leadership ​development ​programs ​in ​higher ​education ​focus primarily ​on ​building ​management ​skills ​and ​acumen ​for ​the ​purpose ​of career advancement, ​the ​Values-Based Academic ​Leadership ​Institute ​does ​much ​more. ​ ​We take ​a ​holistic ​approach ​to ​all ​levels ​of ​academic ​leadership ​by ​grounding ​theory, ​practice, and ​institutional ​mission ​in ​personal ​and professional ​values ​to ​foster authentic, successful ​leadership.
