Excel Leadership Program

The Excel Leadership Program (ELP) is an extraordinary opportunity for Kennesaw State University faculty and staff to develop leadership skills and build relationships with other Kennesaw State University colleagues.  The program is a rewarding experience that will give each participant a sense of their value as a leader at Kennesaw State University.

Working in a cohort of 20 - 24 faculty and staff, participants gain knowledge of their leadership style and develop skills critical for effective leadership.  Excel boasts over 350 accomplished alumni who serve as leaders at Kennesaw State and other universities.

Participants will gain knowledge of KSU's organizational structure, strategic goals, and mission as well as be exposed to leadership roles and operations at the University System Office and State Capitol.
