The SUNY SAIL Institute is pleased to host the Executive Leadership Academy in June 2022 (tentatively June 13-16, 2022) at the SUNY Global Center in NYC. This intensive four-day program is designed to enhance the leadership skills of executive level administrators, vice presidents and provosts and prepare them to advance to, and excel in, the most senior level positions in higher education today.

SUNY SAIL Institute's Executive Leadership Academy is unique in that participants interact with experts from the nationally respected, mission-based executive search firm Isaacson, Miller as well as with campus presidents and system leaders who themselves have advanced to their current positions through repeated promotion.

Participants will also learn from national experts about:

  • Enrollment management
  • Fundraising
  • Budget & Finance
  • Diversity and Inclusion
  • Strategic Communications

Who Should Attend? The SUNY Executive Leadership Academy is designed for academic and administrative professionals who currently serve in executive and/or senior level roles on a leadership trajectory at their institution. This includes provosts, campus vice presidents and deans as well as other senior administrators with significant leadership experience (associate/assistant provosts, associate/assistant vice presidents, chiefs of staff, executive directors, etc.). All share aspirational goals to advance to the highest level of leadership in higher education, specifically to secure presidential, vice presidential or other executive leadership positions in the next 1-3 years.
