The New Leadership Academy Fellows Program (NLA) is a partnership between the University of Utah and the American Association of Hispanics in Higher Education (AAHHE). NLA was previously hosted by the National Forum on Higher Education for the Public Good (National Forum) at the University of Michigan.
The NLA curriculum and learning objectives draw upon traditional leadership theory and contemporary scholarship that investigate the roles of leaders under highly contested and complex conditions. Fellows will participate in tailored programs and activities, which include online learning modules and discussions, an interactive case study simulation, written reflections, and coaching sessions throughout the Fellowship.
Upon completion, NLA Fellows will:
- Recognize the challenges inherent in meeting the responsibilities associated with diversity, equity, and inclusion as overarching concerns in U.S. colleges and universities.
- Acquire sophistication in re-envisioning values and institutional imperatives that translate into dynamic, focus-driven strategies for higher education organizations.
- Gain specialized knowledge and tools necessary to provide highly effective leadership within and outside complex institutional settings.
