Effectiveness in Leadership: Strengthening the Inner Life of the Executive Leader


Effectiveness in Leadership: Strengthening the Inner Life of the Executive Leader
(A Leadership Institute Designed for CCCU Women Presidents and Cabinet-level leaders.)

The event will be held June 9-13, 2022.


Amid the added pressures and demands that all leaders have faced over the past two years, the Council for Christian Colleges & Universities invites women presidents and cabinet-level leaders to set aside the dates of June 9-13, 2022 to focus on rest and renewal of body, mind, and spirit, and to connect with Christ and colleagues in meaningful ways. The main “agenda” of each day is to offer a time for renewal, building life-giving relationships, and providing opportunities to hear God speak through reflection, solitude, and Spirit-led guided sessions. Current issues facing today’s higher education leaders will be the focus of informal guided evening discussion sessions.


Registration Fee: $500
All-inclusive Lodging (single room) and Meals:  $490
