Assess your leadership skills and develop strategies for long-term institutional success in this total-immersion learning experience.
Senior leaders in higher education face a daunting set of challenges: fiscal constraints, heightened accountability, new competitors, emerging technologies, substantial demographic change, and questions about the relevance and effectiveness of higher education.
A flagship program within the Harvard Institutes for Higher Education (HIHE) portfolio, the Institute for Educational Management (IEM) addresses the critical stewardship role played by senior-level leaders at their institutions and provides a rare opportunity to assess your leadership skills, renew your commitment to higher education, develop tangible strategies for long-term institutional success, and forge vibrant and sustained professional networks. You will focus on the challenges of organization change while providing opportunities for personal renewal.
This immersive, two-week program helps experienced, senior-level higher education leaders articulate a compelling institutional vision that fosters meaningful and enduring institutional change. You will explore the challenges of organizational change and discover opportunities for personal renewal. A hallmark of the HIHE experience is the deep and lasting relationships formed among a diverse and dynamic cohort. Through IEM, you will have the opportunity to learn and network with colleagues across the cohort, as well as to make deeper connections among assigned small groups that meet throughout the duration of the two-week program and maintain connections well beyond.
