What happens at ELI?
The Institute begins on Tuesday July 19th with an opening reception. The reception will help you get to know the other members of your ELI cohort and to meet ACHE Leaders.
The first two days of the institute are full days of leadership training. We’ll meet from 8:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. Speakers for the first two days may include Dr. Regina Lewis from the Center for Creative Leadership, Dr. Sean Gallagher, author of the Future of University Credentials, and Nick Emerita, Vice President for Strategic Planning and Execution at Southern New Hampshire University.
Day Three of the institute is a half-day event (8:45 – Noon) and will offer participants an opportunity to apply what they have learned and make plans for their future development.
The Emerging Leaders Institute is a premier leadership opportunity for the ACHE community. ELI attendees in the past have ranged from deans to coordinators. But what they all have had in common is the desire to grow personally and professionally in continuing higher education. ELI participants develop and create their own brand of the leadership throughout the institute. Participants learn about policies and issues facing continuing education. Participants will develop tools, skills, and strategies to solve complex problems and how to lead units and teams through complex issues. Participants will also create a network with other ELI participants which will include mentors. The learning and networking for these participants will continue even after ELI comes to an end.
Hotel and Flight
Flights, hotel and travel expenses are not included in the ELI price. However, we do have a room block for attendees at $200.00 a night. The hotel is located within walking distance of the Loyola University downtown campus where ELI will be held.
Some ACHE regions might be providing scholarships to members. These scholarships might cover a small cost to attend ELI. In return, some regions might ask that the ELI participant serve on a committee in that region for the coming year.
