President's Welcome

 Leadership Academy

Greetings Faculty and Staff,

The El Paso Community College Leadership Academy is now accepting applications for the Class of 2018, a one-year program that will begin in January 2018. We will be celebrating our 14th year in offering a unique professional development opportunity open to all faculty and staff.

The goal of the Class of 2018 Academy is to provide participants with leadership skills and a greater understanding of College operations, services, programs, and activities that will enhance their service to EPCC and to the community. Members of the Class of 2018 will participate in monthly training sessions; network with faculty, staff, administrators, and community leaders; complete an Individual Leadership Action Plan (ILAP), and attend a special two-day training event.



I encourage all employees to consider applying for the Class of 2018. To apply, submit your completed application, and request that your supervisor/director submit the Supervisor’s Statement of Support.

Applications are due by 5:00 p.m., October 20, 2017. Those currently in leadership roles and those seeking to enrich their understanding of the College are encouraged to apply. Additional information about the Leadership Academy, and an application can be found at Visit the Academy Facebook page at to view a photo history of Academy events.

I strongly support and congratulate the Leadership Academy Committee for their dedication in structuring the Academy in support of EPCC succession planning and for their continued commitment to this effort.

William Serrata, Ph.D.
