Gateway is celebrating its 12th year of leadership development with the 2018-19 LEAD class. This class will join 110 graduates from the past 11 years of this successful program.
Dr. Amber Decker, vice president of development and strategic partnerships and Dr. Teri Vonhandorf, vice president of academic affairs, all LEAD graduates, began at Gateway in faculty and staff positions. LEAD has a history of developing leaders who serve at Gateway and beyond.
The Gateway LEAD program, sponsored by the Gateway Foundation, is designed as a personal and professional development experience for employees to explore their potential for leadership in various college roles. Participants are encouraged to engage in college leadership roles after the program. All faculty and staff members are eligible for participation in the 10-month program, which begins every August and runs through May.
The curriculum for this year is again crafted by a steering committee of alumni and will again explore the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC) Competencies for Community College Leaders including organizational strategy, institutional finance, research, fundraising, and resource management, communication and collaboration.
Sessions will be held throughout Northern Kentucky to familiarize the class with community resources and will also include a visit to Frankfort and the Kentucky Community and Technical College System office in Versailles.
