Leadership Development Institutes

Council for Christian Colleges & Universities - Institutes

Each year, the Council for Christian Colleges & Universities offers Leadership Institutes.  We are happy to announce that we plan to host two Leadership Institutes in June 2017.


2017 Institutes

Multi-Ethnic Leadership Development Institute
June 12-16

M-E LDI specifically engages emerging leaders who are people of color.  An application, including two reference letters, is required to participate.  

Approximately 20 emerging leaders will be selected to participate in the 2017 M-E LDI, which offers the following components:

  • A year-long leadership development program that begins with the June 12-16 Institute at Cedar Spring.
  • An individually-tailored “shadowing” experience of 2-3 days with a senior-level leader on another CCCU campus
  • Professional networking with 20-25 current and emerging leaders
  • An introduction to cutting-edge leadership literature and research
  • A one-on-one meeting with a Resource Team member to outline a year-long Professional Development Plan
  • Opportunities to interact about Leadership Lessons, Case Studies, and Best Practices from within and beyond Christian higher education

Again, please consider nominating individuals on your campus (or who might be considering moving into Christian higher education) for this professional development opportunity. 

Women's Advanced Leadership Institute
June 16-20

The Women’s Advanced Leadership Institute (WALI) is a continuing opportunity for women who have participated in a previous CCCU leadership development program.  On a limited basis, some slots are available to involve other individuals who are more “advanced” in their leadership journey than participants in the foundational Leadership Development Institutes. This “WALI” requires registration on a first-come, first-served basis with a maximum of 25 participants.  Registration will open soon.


You can begin the application process by completing our online form found here. For those applying for the M-E LDI there will be another set of questions required. These questions will be available soon.
