President's Leadership Institute

The President’s Leadership Institute (PLI) gives faculty, staff and administrators the opportunity to learn more about themselves, their colleagues, the college and collaborative leadership.

This year, participants will engage in an evidence-based leadership development program called “The Leadership Challenge,” based on the “Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership” model. Prior to the program, participants will complete a “leader development plan” and receive other program materials throughout. When you apply for SLCC’s President’s Leadership Institute, you will:

  • Develop leadership skills by understanding & assessing your leadership philosophy
  • Participate in “Leader Labs” to actively engage with concepts and receive feedback from your peers
  • Participate in a peer-group project with real life application and executive sponsorship
  • Integrate service and hands-on learning in our surrounding communities
  • Learn about inclusive leadership and think deeply about equity minded principles
  • Receive support for success in the program

Your Commitment

  • Attend all sessions of President’s Leadership Institute (8-10 hours per month, except October which is 2 x 8 hour sessions)
  • Complete 10-15 hours of preparation and project work outside of PLI time to ensure you are prepared and your group project makes progress
  • Reflect and focus on embracing our SLCC values as a leader
