Cosponsored by the Council of Independent Colleges, the American Association of State Colleges and Universities, and the American Academic Leadership Institute, the year-long program includes two seminars, readings, individualized experiential activities, and structured mentorship experiences that help participants acquire the knowledge, skills, and experiences that they need to become effective presidents. Set in Washington, DC, the opening seminar will take place June 25–27, 2018, and the closing seminar will be held June 17–19, 2019.

Approximately 40 cabinet officers, drawn from all divisions of the institution, will be selected for the 2018–2019 program. The president to whom the cabinet officer reports must nominate the candidate. The nomination deadline is January 12, 2018.

Since 2009, 67 of the 262 participants who have completed the Executive Leadership Academy have been appointed as presidents or chancellors.
