This program is targeted at current leaders and high-potential emerging leaders in UI Health Care. Individuals are nominated by the Deans, Department Chairs, the Senior Management Team members, or their direct supervisor.

Nominated faculty and staff wishing to participate in the Executive Leadership Academy must submit an application that includes a commitment to attend all sessions, submit a project proposal, and participate fully in the program.  Failure to complete the program may result in an estimated $1,200 cost of the program being charged back to the participant’s department.

Applications will be reviewed and participants selected by a panel. The selection process is designed to create the most qualified, diverse, and inclusive mix of participants to enhance learning from each other and to reflect the breadth of the school’s and hospital’s mission. Approximately 25 to 30 faculty and staff will be selected to participate.

The application window for 2024-2025 will open March 1, 2024 until April 26, 2024.
