The SUNY Institute for Academic & Innovative Leadership (SAIL) is pleased the third annual Winter Leadership Retreat. The SAIL Institute is grounded on the concept that colleges and universities need leaders who are strategic and innovative as well as have a firm understanding of the special nature of the academic core of the institutions that they serve. The SAIL Institute seeks to advance understanding and development of the next generation of leaders in higher education, and we are calling on you to nominate the people from your campus that are/will be charged with these critical leadership roles.

Spend 3 days expanding upon your ability to:

  • Lead in Higher Education
  • Lead High-Performing Teams
  • Lead Academic Cultures of Innovation

Who Should Attend? This program is designed for faculty and administrative staff at a higher education institution looking to expand their leadership skills. Are you preparing to move into or a new role or boost your ability to perform in your current position? This program is open to private institutions as well as SUNY.
