The UA Academic Leadership Institute is a partnership between the Provost’s Office and the Division of Human Resources, under the direction of Thomas P. Miller, Professor of English and Vice Provost for Faculty Affairs, and Allison M. Vaillancourt, Vice President for Business Affairs and Human Resources.
Established in 2010 to enhance and diversify the University’s leadership capacity, the Institute provides a yearlong professional development program for 25 faculty and campus leaders, including academic and administrative department heads, associate and assistant deans, and individuals identified as emerging leaders.

The UA Academic Leadership Institute includes working retreats spread out over the academic year along with regular meetings to network with campus, business, and community leaders. Additional features include:
