The Academic Impressions Virtual Workshop Experience

There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to exploring responsive issues in higher education. Our virtual workshops provide you with an active learning environment and an online space where you can explore ideas, get inspired by what your peers are doing, and understand the range of possibilities around a certain topic. Depending on what you need to solve a specific challenge at your institution, you will have the chance to gain ideas, plans, refinements, or connections with those undergoing the same challenges as you. You will leave these sessions with practical solutions that you can take back to your team or task force.

What you will get:

  • Learn from what your peers are doing across the nation
  • Gather unique and creative approaches that you may not have thought about
  • Validate and vet plans and priorities
  • Contribute your ideas and help shape the conversation
  • Get work done in a space that’s designed to help you reflect, be creative, and maintain focus on the issue
  • Connect with subject matter experts who steer the conversation and add value
  • Experience expert facilitation to ensure practical outcomes and takeaways

As the coronavirus pandemic unfolds nationally, it is so important to keep connecting and networking with your peers - at a “social distance” - and to keep learning and developing as higher-ed leaders and professionals. Don’t let social distancing and quarantines prevent you from setting aside time for professional development. Everything is changing so fast; more than ever, we need to be pooling our resources and knowledge and finding the best ways to develop our capacity, connect and share with each other, and move forward during a challenging time.

Perspectives from a Woman President of Color

This conversation will be led by Dr. Phoebe Haddon, Chancellor Emerita of the University of Rutgers – Camden. Her discussion will be framed around the following three tenets:

  1. Like the arc of justice, one’s perspective on problem-solving can bend wide.
  2. Leadership building is critical. Each of us needs opportunities to imagine ourselves as leaders.
  3. Team building is an art. It takes patience and hard work.

 


 

Lessons Learned from Three Decades of Leadership

In this second session, Rebecca Chopp, Chancellor Emerita from the University of Denver, will reflect on lessons learned from her leadership journey:

  1. Her personal perspective on becoming a president includes seizing opportunities and recognizing your calling.
  2. The unique position and multi-faceted role of the president can be shown through the metaphor of kaleidoscope and periscope.
  3. Your creativity will not only drive your vision and transformation but also how you empower and manage relationships, represent the institution, and go about fundraising.
  4. How the joy of continual learning, finding support, and self-care will sustain you throughout your leadership career.
