Excel Dates: May 7th - May 11th, 2018
(Orientation April 26, 3:00pm - 4:30pm)
The Excel Leadership Program is an extraordinary opportunity for faculty and staff
to develop leadership skills and build relationships with other Kennesaw State University
(KSU) colleagues. The program is a rewarding experience that will give each participant
a sense of their value as a leader at Kennesaw State University. Excel boasts over
250 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.
Working in a cohort of 24 faculty and staff members, participants work as a team:
- Exploring leadership styles.
- Learning essential skills of effective and ethical leaders.
- Networking with university, system wide, and state government leaders to gain perspective
on the policies and governance that affect our university.
- Experiencing hands on leadership through a team service learning project.
The cost of the program is sponsored by the Center for University Learning and the
Office of the President. Participants are asked to commit to attending the full schedule of events during the week of the program.
All full-time university employees who are in good standing, and who have been employed
a minimum of six months at the time of application, are eligible to apply for this program.
