|Leadership Institute History|
The ACBSP Leadership Institute was first held in 2012. Recognizing a lack of leadership training opportunities within ACBSP, 2010-11 ACBSP President Annette Craven of the University of the Incarnate Word partnered with Gregory O’Brien, Ph.D. of the Higher Education Group to offer a day and a half workshop that preceded the 2012 Annual Conference. The workshop, themed "Setting the Table for Success,” was open to new and prospective deans and programs chairs. The presentations offered techniques for problem analysis and building consensus, support and momentum, focused on both external and internal issues.
In 2013, the Leadership Institute will again convene as a two-day pre-conference workshop at the 2013 Annual Conference in Salt Lake City, Utah. Like last year, the workshop is geared towards current and prospective deans to provide them with the leadership skills required in their role as head of the business unit. Olin Oedekoven, President and CEO of Peregrine Academic Services and Peregrine Leadership Institute, will lead the session with Annette Craven. The theme is "Strategic Planning for Strategic Leadership.”
