Leading Through Change Symposium

Leading Through Change Symposium

The Leading Through Change Symposium is a unique opportunity for mid-level change management professionals and emerging leaders, such as managers and directors with an interest in furthering their leadership skills as it relates to supervision, communication strategies, strategic planning, organizational development, and fiscal management.

With dedicated educational and networking opportunities, attendees will return to campus with ideas, tools, and networks to inspire teams, operate more effectively, and lead through change. NCCI and ACUI are excited to partner for this inaugural program to support higher education leaders in their learning development.
