The President’s Leadership Academy was established at Morehead State University in 2006. The initiative’s primary purpose is to provide premier professional development for selected faculty and staff including academic department chairs, directors and other administrators.
Academy members have the opportunity to increase their awareness of the complexity of issues facing the University and postsecondary education, thereby, expanding their awareness of the environment in which decisions are made. The yearlong curriculum includes reading assignments, discussion groups, case studies, internship experiences, field trips, and seminars with high performing leaders.
Program leadership includes a steering committee chaired by the University president, ad hoc committees of Academy alumni, and a program director. Applicants to the program are interviewed by community leaders who make recommendations on class membership to the steering committee.
