Overview of Institute
Leadership education of college and university students is an important and ongoing process within higher education institutions. Student affairs professionals play an essential role in coordinating, shaping, and evaluating this area by developing leadership courses and programs, creating co-curricular opportunities, and using new technologies. The Leadership Educators Institute (LEI) is an innovative forum geared specifically towards new to mid-level student affairs professionals and leadership educators with these responsibilities. The Institute is coordinated by NASPA, ACPA, and the National Clearinghouse for Leadership Programs, and will be held December 9 –11, 2012, at the Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio.
The Leadership Educators Institute aims to create a space where student affairs administrators will discuss current leadership topics:
- Leadership development theory discussions which will include the Relational Leadership Model, the Social Change Model, and Leadership Identity Development (LID);
- Leadership courses (credit and non-credit) will include innovative syllabi, effective textbooks, incentives for students, experiential learning, and service oriented;
- Assessment of leadership programs including learning outcomes, using CAS Standards, virtual leadership portfolios, certificate programs;
- Cohort leadership programs, emerging leaders, multi-year programs, developmental issues, and funding; and
- Intersectional role of leadership education in identity development, service-learning, social justice education, and other functional areas.
