New Presidents Program

Immediately prior to the Presidents Institute, CIC will offer a concurrent program for recently appointed college presidents, typically in their first or second year. A program for spouses and partners of recently appointed college presidents runs concurrently. The programs are led by experienced presidents and presidential spouses, and afford opportunities to share ideas with others who are new to the presidency and to the role of presidential spouse.
Dates and times for the New Presidents Program are:
  • Tuesday, January 3, Noon–8:00 p.m.
  • Wednesday, January 4, 7:30 a.m.–1:00 p.m.
