This course is open to professionals interested in learning more about leadership in higher education for a changing demographic or interested in developing their own leadership skills. The very idea that individuals can be taught to lead is not without its skeptics. Reasonable people, even some scholars in the field, point to the important traits, skills, and attributes that are observed in many visible leaders and contend that certain qualities necessary for effective leadership are not easily transmitted. To accept this premise and conclude that some people are born as natural leaders and others cannot be expected to lead at all is to make a mistake at the other end of the logical spectrum. We believe that leadership can be taught as long as it is concurrently nurtured, that most people possess a constellation of strengths around which they can construct their own leadership philosophy and approach, and that leadership development programming—if done well—can be transformative for organizers and participants.

TOP REVIEWS FROM LEADING FOR EQUITY, DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION IN HIGHER EDUCATION
I learnt important concepts and tools to address the question of equity and inclusion at higher educational institutions.
This course was highly supportive of processes I was familiar with but brought in a deeper way of thinking as well as new approaches.
This is an excellent course. I have learned a lot about this subject and will be able to apply it as we are beginning a review at the College where I am an instructor.
I wish there was more information on tangible differences and ideas one could make or follow into higher education and access in higher ed.
