With a couple of exceptions four-hour modules are provided by EPCC Cabinet members at the EPCC Administrative Services Center (ASC) Boardroom from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm on the third Tuesday of each month. The program also includes a two-day retreat and campus visits. In addition to attending monthly information sessions, participants will work on a team project designed to provide practical and realistic solutions tied to College goals for the current year. Attendance at all workshops is expected for continuation in the program.
Our goal each year is to include a diverse group of participants in the Leadership Academy that represents each campus, multiple teaching disciplines, and staff from a wide range of programs, offices and departments. Submit  your application to participate in the Class of 2016 Leadership Academy.

What skills should hiring committees seek in candidates for leadership positions? What skills do instructional leaders recommend for inclusion in doctoral leadership programs? How can community colleges prepare their own staff for leadership responsibilities?
