Emerging Leaders Seminar

The Emerging Leaders Seminar supports the professional development of faculty and staff who are new to their leadership role in accreditation.

Undertaking this work can be challenging: “accreditation preparation” is not part of academic programs. Most individuals with responsibility for leading accreditation efforts are left to learn the role on the job. 

During this 2-day seminar, you will learn about:

  • Common practices, processes, concepts, and vocabulary for quality assurance
  • A conceptual framework for approaching program evaluation and accreditation
  • Where to begin, and how to prioritize and lead the work
  • How to identify and deploy key resources, stakeholders, and actions
  • Effective ways to organize the people and the process
  • How to manage data collection, analysis, and reporting

The principles presented in this seminar will apply to any quality assurance process, with practical attention will be given to AAQEP’s system. As you engage with peers and seminar faculty in both structured activities and informal conversations, you'll also begin building a network of professional colleagues.

Leave with an action plan and the confidence to successfully engage in this work.
