Overview 

The Leadership Academy will meet over a three-month period, from January through March 2019. Each session will highlight specific issues and challenges faced by UCSC leaders. Through presentation, discussion, and experiential learning, participants will broaden their understanding of how UCSC operates and hone their leadership skills and abilities. The Academy provides a unique opportunity for cross-campus networking, and for dialogue with the Executive Vice Chancellor, and other campus leaders. Three of this year's sessions will be held jointly with the Graduate Student Leadership Program. There is no fee to participate.
