About the UA Academic Leadership Institute
The UA Academic Leadership Institute was established in 2010 with funding from a private donor to enhance and diversify the University’s leadership capacity. The University has set ambitious research, educational, and outreach goals. To help achieve those goals, the UA Academic Leadership Institute provides a yearlong professional development program for twenty-five faculty and campus leaders, including academic and administrative department heads, associate and assistant deans, and individuals identified as emerging leaders.
