“The Colloquium was wonderful in every way and one I would highly recommend for any provost. It explored critical areas of leadership, offered time for reflection, and provided a network of peers with whom to discuss ideas. It was stimulating and forced me to stretch intellectually in ways I did not expect.”
—Evelyn Quinn, Provost, Georgian Court University
CIC periodically offers a leadership colloquium for chief academic officers. The colloquium is designed to engage participants in a selection of cases drawn from classical and contemporary thought and bring them into relevance to the situations faced by today's chief academic officers. The pleasures of reading familiar works anew are combined with the practical benefit of reflection on their relevance to contemporary academic leadership issues. The seminar helps prepare chief academic officers for changes and challenges in the decades ahead, to understand complex and unprecedented situations, and be prepared to bring into practical use the best strategic wisdom.
This Colloquium is made possible by the generous support of the Henry Luce Foundation.
