New Presidents Program

Thursday, January 3, 11:30 a.m.–8:00 p.m.
Friday, January 4, 7:00 a.m.–12:45 p.m.
 
Immediately prior to the Presidents Institute, CIC will offer a 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 meet and share ideas with others who are new to the presidency and to the role of presidential spouse.
