UW-Green Bay Vice Chancellor for University Inclusivity & Student Affairs, Corey A. King, is one of 25 leaders who will engage with the AGB Institute for Leadership & Governance’s specialized curriculum of symposia, workshops, and one-on-one mentoring.
The six-month program is designed for individuals who aspire to presidencies at four-year public research universities and regional comprehensive institutions. Twenty-five participants from institutions around the country begin their experience with an in-person symposium in Washington, D.C. in September.
Founded by higher education executive search firm AGB Search to prepare participants for the rigors of institutional leadership, the Institute is presented by the Association of Governing Boards of Universities and Colleges (AGB) and Miami University. Now entering its fourth year, the program is designed to bolster the pipeline of qualified and diverse presidential candidates and has already seen 10 of its graduates achieve appointments to college or university presidencies.
“Those who are preparing to serve in leadership roles are faced with unprecedented challenges on a global scale,” said Nancy Zimpher, co-founder and director of the institute. “Our aim has always been to ensure these up-and-coming leaders are ready to immediately step into their roles and guide their universities with confidence.”
