In keeping with its mission, NCBAA presents Leadership Development Institute for African American Mid-Level Administrators. The Institute prepares African Americans in community colleges for leadership roles to insure that the pipeline to executive-level positions is fluid.
Participants selected for LDI will be completely immersed in leadership activities, including some evenings, for the entire week. An interactive approach will be utilized to facilitate focused dialogue on community college issues pertaining to leadership, ethics, diversity and inclusiveness, global awareness, technology and institutional change and development. Additionally, all sessions are deliberate and purposeful so as to develop and enhance leadership skills for the present and future.
All sessions are facilitated by distinguished community college leaders. Benefits include networking opportunities with African American leaders and Lakin participants, research opportunities, and complimentary membership to NCBBA and its regional affiliates
