What is the Academic Leadership Institute?

UAF’s Academic Leadership Institute, founded by Provost Emeritus Paul Reichardt in 2000-01, is designed as an opportunity for a small group of faculty, staff and/or administrators to explore the topic of leadership in an academic context.   Since its inception more than one hundred individuals have taken part in the Institute resulting in enhanced leadership at UAF.

The format of the Institute is a morning gathering (9am to noon) one Saturday each month during the academic year with the time divided between an invited speaker, questions and answers, and a case study. There will be homework in the form of required reading. Each of the ten or so “students” will receive the set of books courtesy of the Provost.


The schedule of  2015 - 2016 sessions is as follows:
