How Custom Trainings are Designed

Academic Impressions works with dozens of institutions to customize training based on the unique needs of each campus. We take a flexible approach in how we design each workshop.

Some campuses have an existing leadership program in place and they simply leverage the content in our online library so they are not “re-creating the wheel.” Instead, they can focus their efforts on the application of the information.

Other institutions ask us to bookend internal programs. We can provide one or two-day workshops to kick-off and capstone an annual cohort-based program, including providing multiple assessments and personalized coaching.

We also have the capabilities to provide a full end-to-end solution for an institution’s leadership program. In these cases, we assist with everything from identifying participants (criteria, process, etc.), managing all participant communication, designing and customizing every aspect of the program, engaging national experts to deliver the entire content, bringing in assessments and coaching, assessing the program’s effectiveness, and more.

Regardless of the option, we work closely with campus partners to customize the program based on the unique goals and context of the institution and the participants.
