The Deans Leadership Program (DLP) focuses on critical issues that occur in the initial months and years of the dean’s role with intensive in-person as well as virtual engagement sessions. It is designed for deans to address the various questions and situations that both confront and confound them while working towards solutions that are beneficial for their college, colleagues, and them personally. This program provides a unique opportunity to learn from and with colleagues who are at a similar stage in their leadership journey.
