John E. Roueche Future Leaders Institute

June 23–28, 2013 Baltimore, MD www.aacc.nche.edu


President’s Welcome On behalf of the board of directors of the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC) and the AACC staff, we are pleased to welcome participants to the 2013 AACC John E. Roueche Future Leaders Institute and Future Presidents Institute. These events are designed to help meet the professional development goals of talented and aspiring leaders through intensive leadership training. I take great pride in congratulating you as a member of this selective group for your commitment to professional growth. One of the primary goals of this training is to expose emerging leaders to the vision, value, and philosophy of 2-year colleges. In addition, the program focuses on the individual’s competencies to lead by placing emphasis on self-awareness and organizational knowledge. The AACC Leadership Suite, which comprises all of the professional development offerings provided by the association, strives to address leadership competencies and characteristics in a comprehensive and integrated manner. As a participant in these programs, you will learn about issues such as emotional intelligence, planning and budgeting, academic programming, crisis and conflict management, and the politics of education. But more than just theoretical knowledge, you will have the opportunity to engage in hands-on activities that reinforce the lessons. Leadership development is a race with no finish line. Leaders continually strive to improve their skill sets and their ability to lead the organizations that they are privileged to serve. There is always the opportunity for continued development and improvement on our journey. As we prepare members of the 2013 classes to return to their home campuses, we truly believe that we have exposed them to insights and networking opportunities that will advance their professional and personal goals and that will have a lasting impact on community and technical college education. Sincerely,

Walter G. Bumphus, PhD President and CEO

Whether or not community colleges are successful in this mission depends primarily on leadership. In his new monograph, Access, Success, and Completion: A Primer for Community College Faculty, Administrators, Staff, and Trustees, Dr. O’Banion suggests that the student success pathway is a model for strategic institutional planning and individual student planning. He also suggests guidelines for student success and institutional conditions that must be met (and driven by leaders) if community colleges are to double, by 2020, the number of students who earn a certificate or associate degree or who transfer to a university.

7:30–8:30 am Continental Breakfast Competencies: Organizational Strategy, Professionalism

8:30–10:45 am Ethics and Legal Issues in Higher Education Michael B. Goldstein, Co-leader, Higher Education, Dow Lohnes (DC) The terms ethical and lawful are often conflated, and in fact they do overlap, in key respects. But there is an important difference: The law specifies what must be done (or what must be avoided); ethical conduct describes what should be done (or avoided). It is an unfortunate fact that ethical lapses — conduct that does not necessarily rise to the level of a violation of law — are a common cause for an institutional leader to lose his or her position. It is not that presidents and other campus executives are more prone to questionable conduct. Rather, it is that the expectations of academia impose a markedly higher standard on those who assume leadership positions. That same unique duality applies across institutions, setting standards of conduct for faculty, staff, and students alike. This session will explore the intersection of law and ethics as it defines both institutional and individual conduct from the perspective of the campus leadership, with an emphasis on preventative measures that every executive should consider.

10:45–11:00 am Break Competencies: Organizational Strategy, Accountability

John E. Roueche Leadership Legacy Fund In August 2012, the Executive Committee of the Board of Directors of the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC) approved renaming the AACC Future Leaders Institute in honor of Dr. John E. Roueche. A nationally recognized authority in community college education, Dr. Roueche has written 36 books and over 150 chapters and articles. He has spoken to more than 1,300 community colleges and universities since 1970 and has accumulated honors and awards that are too numerous to name. To honor Dr. Roueche, the John E. Roueche Leadership Legacy Fund was created to provide financial support to emerging leaders who have been accepted to participate in the Future Leaders Institute but lack the financial resources to do so. The fund will also be used to attract high-quality faculty for the program. To date, over $80,000 has been raised to support the development of emerging leaders.
