Sponsored by the National Council on Student Development
Dates: June 21 - 23, 2013
The National Council for Student Development (NCSD) will be hosting a Community College Student Development Leadership Institute from June 21 – 23, 2013, in Chicago, Illinois.
The Community College Student Development Leadership Institute is designed to nurture participants for career advancement in Student Development. Using a “Great Teacher’s Retreat” approach, four distinguished chief student development officers will facilitate this intensive training program. The Institute will provide an exciting opportunity for participants to share ideas, engage in critical discourse and learn from each other while preparing to meet the challenges facing our profession.
A national review panel of student development leaders will select a maximum of 25 participants. Applicants will be required to respond to criteria designed to clarify readiness to assume increasingly responsible positions in student development. The primary goal of NCSD in conducting the Institute is to prepare individuals for senior leadership positions. Previous Institute participants have made career advances, and some are now Chief Student Development Officers themselves.
The Institute fee, which does not include lodging or transportation, is $725 for participants from NCSD member institutions, and $850 for non-members. This fee includes two full days of training, materials, two lunches, and one dinner.
Help us make the Leadership Institute a success by recommending prospective candidates who are amongst your brightest colleagues and/or colleagues you are mentoring and preparing for senior administrative positions in student services. We promise a dynamic and beneficial learning centered experience for those selected to participate. Submit your nominations by April 19, 2013. All nominated candidates will receive an application packet from the National Office.
