The ADEA Leadership Institute will prepare these educators for expanded roles in their institutions and the profession. They emerge not only with the knowledge and skills necessary for their careers, but also with greater self-understanding and deeper personal vision.

Designed to assist the nation's most promising individuals at academic institutions in becoming leaders in dental and higher education, ADEA Leadership Institute sessions cover leadership theory, team building, communications, managing change, public policy, educational policy, legal issues, research, and budgeting and financial management, designed to guide and enhance professional development.
