The Institute for Excellence represents a new approach to self and organizational development. Born out of the Institute for Excellence in Leadership, this new method will facilitate development and excellence at all levels of the university by utilizing two related but unique programs tailored to the needs of the individual contributor and the administrator at Kent State. These two programs are typically year long development experiences requiring an application for potential participants to be considered.
The Institute for Excellence for the Individual Contributor will accelerate performance through increasing personal excellence and aligning personal leadership within Kent State University.
The Institute for Excellence for Administrators will accelerate performance through increasing leadership capacity at the department or unit level and aligning vision, talent and behaviors for excellence at the department or unit level.
Both programs will meet monthly and spend time with Kent State and external leaders, in addition to exploring various models of personal development. Action learning is where participants apply what he or she has learned for improved performance.
