Campfire: Audience of one: developing strategic support from university leadership

Recent research indicates that the most successful academic and administrative programmes are ones that have strong support from university leadership. The research also indicates that programme directors that advocate for their programmes and initiate strategy development with institutional leadership are the most successful. These programme directors also have the highest degree of career satisfaction. Join us to share stories of challenges and successes in cultivating university leadership.
