New Leadership Academy Fellows Program

The New Leadership Academy Fellows Program (NLA) was founded as a partnership between the University of Utah and the American Association of Hispanics in Higher Education (AAHHE). Previously hosted by the National Forum on Higher Education for the Public Good  (National Forum) at the University of Michigan, NLA transitioned to the University of Utah in February 2021.

The NLA curriculum and learning objectives draw upon traditional leadership theory and contemporary scholarship that investigate the roles of leaders under highly contested and complex conditions. Fellows participate in tailored programs and activities, which include online learning modules and discussions, an interactive case study simulation, written reflections, and coaching sessions throughout the Fellowship.

Upon completion, NLA Fellows will:

  • Recognize the challenges inherent in meeting the responsibilities of leadership in today's U.S. colleges and universities.
  • Acquire sophistication in re-envisioning values and institutional imperatives that translate into dynamic, focus-driven strategies for higher education organizations.
  • Gain specialized knowledge and tools necessary to provide highly effective leadership within and outside complex institutional settings.
