ST. CLOUD, Minn. – "The Professional Life Cycle of Women in Higher Education Administration" is the theme of St. Cloud State University’s first Summer Leadership Institute for Women in Higher Education Administration.
It will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Thursday, June 18, at the Atwood Memorial Center on campus.
Keynote speaker is Sharon McDade, director of the American Council on Education Fellows Program, the nation’s premier higher education leadership development program. McDade has been involved with leadership development programs for senior administrators such as the Harvard Institute for Educational Management, the Massachusetts Higher Education Executive Leadership Institute and the National Association for Women in Education’s Institute for Emerging Women Leaders.
Beginning with entry positions in academic affairs and administration, McDade will consider the ladder rungs to senior posts and the presidency, and explore the leadership learning and stretching that typically is absorbed along the way.
Among the panels and breakout sessions are "Impact of the Obama Administration on Higher Education," "Career Outlook for Women in Higher Education Administration" and a panel of administrators discussing the professional life of female administrators.
