In partnership with the American Council on Education, the NCID convened leaders across higher education to examine who will be the future leaders of higher education, what they will need to know in order to be prepared for the future challenges of higher education, and how institutions can support the development and advancement of leaders as they progress in their careers and knowledge. Particularly, this convening sought to:
- Articulate the responsibilities associated with college and university leadership within emerging higher education contexts;
- Explore how leaders can be prepared and encouraged to balance institutional responsibilities with the demands of protecting shared commitments across the system of higher education; and
- Propose new and innovative strategies for ensuring that future leaders serving the profession and acting throughout our institutions are prepared with the knowledge, tools, and courage to succeed in their roles and facilitate movement toward a more just and equitable society.
