A Better You. A Better UA.

What is the best way for the University of Alabama to prepare for the future?  We believe it comes from investing in leaders.  During this two-year program, Leadership U will strengthen the capacity for leadership for up to 10 select members within the University community.

Leadership U is designed to prepare aspiring faculty and professional staff to assume positions of higher responsibility within the University and other higher education arenas.

The curriculum is designed to:

  • develop and enhance participants’ abilities for higher-level management/leadership responsibilities,

  • provide practical skills that may be used to enhance participants immediate effectiveness as an administrator,

  • update participants on critical issues affecting University and its mission,

  • enhance participants' abilities to think critically about higher education in a dynamic environment.
