Message from the President
The El Paso Community College Leadership Academy is now accepting applications for the Class of 2015, which will run from January through December 2015. We will be celebrating our 11th year in offering this unique professional development opportunity that is open to all faculty and staff. The goal of the Academy is to develop and enhance leadership qualities, characteristics, and skills in employees currently in positions of leadership, for those striving to advance into leadership positions, and to those wishing to further enrich their interpersonal, teambuilding, and communication skills in the office and in the classroom. Full-time and part-time employees are invited to apply; the Academy embraces the idea that you don't need a title to be a leader.
Members of the Class of 2015 will attend an EPCC Insights session to learn about College operations; meet with successful community leaders; network with faculty and staff from other campuses; develop a team project to support student success; tour EPCC campuses; and participate in training that reflects the most current leadership research and thinking.
I encourage all employees to consider applying for the Class of 2015. To apply, submit your completed Application for Admission and request that your supervisor submit the Supervisors Statement of Support. A description of the Fundamentals and Advanced Leadership training options and forms are attached. Applications are due by 5:00 PM, October 21, 2014. More information about the Leadership Academy can be found at
I congratulate the Leadership Academy Committee for their dedication in structuring the Academy and their continued commitment to this effort. I strongly support the Academy and I am committed to training main- this unique training opportunity of which we can all be proud.
William Serrata, Ph.D.
