EvCC Leadership Academy

What is Leadership Academy?

The Leadership Academy was established in 2007 as a professional development program for employees in all types of positions throughout the college including faculty, classified staff, and administrators.  Our goal is to provide a personal and supportive experience for the enhancement of skills with specific emphasis on leadership practices, working styles, diversity, communication, group dynamics, design thinking, change management and conflict resolution.  Participants meet twice monthly from October through May to explore specific topics and to design and complete a group project that addresses an issue or need at the college.

Congratulations to the 2014 - 2015  Leadership Academy Graduates!
