About Attending This Program

All EDUCAUSE Institutes are built around the following core themes, which you'll learn more about in the program: diversity, equity, and inclusion, student success, and digital transformation. We believe in a humanized, learner-centered approach that supports communities of learning and networking.

This intensive, eight-week institute engages participants in interactive live sessions, offers small applied team projects designed to support networking and learning, and provides coaching with the faculty. We ask that participants actively plan the time they will spend on the institute each week, even on a daily basis. Each competency below is delivered with diverse learning materials, resources, activities, and capstone projects in support of in-depth learning, immediate application, and networking.

Institute Competencies

  • Interpersonal Communication
  • Projects: Methods, Best Practices, and Stakeholders
  • Cost Management
  • HR Performance and Motivation
  • Leadership Practices for New Managers

View each competency’s learning outcomes on the Schedule page.

Weekly Meetings

Once a week, we will hold a live, synchronous online meeting to discuss resources, activities, and projects. These meetings will be a combination of short talks, discussion, and opportunities for questions. See the full meeting schedule in the Schedule page.

Learners are expected to dedicate approximately 4-5 hours per week (synchronous and asynchronous) to have an engaged and successful learning experience.

Coaching and Mentoring Opportunities
