The Presidents Emerging Leaders Program is a professional development opportunity for highly motivated faculty and staff of the University of Hawaii that identifies and develops future campus and system leaders. It affirms our intent to invest in our faculty and staff, while also creating an institutional culture that honors diversity and inclusion.
The program will assist participants in establishing a base of knowledge about higher education, and in addition, offer potential leaders a chance to reflect upon their leadership potential and how they might make a difference in our campuses and system. A variety of methods, including discussions, lectures, case studies, simulations, and hands-on exercises, may be used to develop leadership skills and apply those skills in solving real-life issues.
Participants will benefit from the opportunity to assess career and leadership interests, develop knowledge and tools, and examine strategic goals and challenges facing our public higher education system. System and campus leaders and others will take part in facilitating a schedule of topics.
