The Senior Leadership Seminar (The Virginia Network)

Are you a woman contemplating a career or advancing your career in higher education administration? The Senior Leadership Seminar sponsored by the Virginia Network of the American Council on Education (ACE) Office of Women in Higher Education is a great launching pad to assess and reflect upon your leadership skills.

The Leadership Seminar is conducted in three parts in October, January and June. The sessions focus on personal development, professional development, and trends in higher education. During each meeting, speakers and guests join the group to discuss critical issues facing higher education from a variety of perspectives.

The unique feature of the Senior Leadership Seminar series is the mix of administrators from both the public and private sectors, from two-year and four-year institutions and from a wide variety of functional roles. This mix brings together knowledge and experiences which greatly enhance discussions and group interaction. Participants have found professional colleagues with whom they can discuss problems, share perspectives, and gain support and assistance in professional growth and mobility. As a result of the strong bonds among members of previous classes, the seminar series has active alumnae who continue to work to enhance the advancement of women in higher education throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia.

If you would like to become a seminar participant for the current academic year or require additional information, please contact the College’s institutional representative, Christine Holt at 703-764-7784.
