President's Leadership Institute

Salt Lake Community College President's Leadership Institute will provide faculty, staff, and administration with an opportunity to learn more about themselves, others they work with, and how they can work together to become better leaders. While the College possesses many solid leaders across campus, this Institute is designed to assist in expanding those leadership characteristics and guiding others who are interested in developing stronger leadership skills.

The Institute will provide an opportunity for participants to interactively learn more about leadership styles, management tools, and higher education administrative operations. All faculty, staff, and administration are welcome to take advantage of this opportunity and help the Salt Lake Community College become an even greater institution of higher learning.
