Aspiring Leaders Program

Aspiring Leaders Program

Leadership is a series of behaviors rather than a role for heroes. -- Margaret Wheatley, writer

The Lane Community College Aspiring Leaders Program is a nine-month leadership development experience designed to develop personal leadership and competencies needed in the contemporary community college.

The Aspiring Leaders Program is by application only. Selection is based on an evaluation of the applicant’s readiness to engage in the leadership learning experience and the applicant’s commitment to the time and attention required.

All Lane Community College staff, faculty, and managers may apply. This is an excellent opportunity for those who are exploring their leadership potential in their current position, or are thinking about moving into a leadership position.
