Institute Description

The Institute is a week-long intensive executive development program, focused on new UCEDD directors as well as Assistant Directors, Program Directors and others in UCEDDs who, in the opinion of the UCEDDs leadership, demonstrate both potential and willingness to assume senior leadership roles in the UCEDD network.

Activities include a week long leadership institute as well as optional follow-up webinars/ teleconferences, and participation in the national listserv for Institute graduates. The goal of the initiative is to identify and support emerging leaders and provide them with the knowledge and skills needed to become transformational leaders of UCEDDs.
