The Academic Management Institute will begin its thirty-first year in October 2016, serving women in higher education throughout Colorado and Wyoming. The Institute is sponsored by the Colorado Network of Women Leaders (CNWL), the state affiliate of the American Council on Education’s Inclusive Excellence Group. Over 1,000 women from thirty institutions have participated in AMI during its history.
Four seminars for the 2016-2017 year will feature presentations and workshops by higher education leaders from Colorado and Wyoming. Topics will include managing change, political savvy, effective leadership, diversity and inclusion, and career development strategies. Each participant will complete a project at her home institution and interview senior level administrators.
This year, the theme will be Small Pieces/Big Pictures and the emphasis areas of presentations and activities will be how individual and departmental  work on our campuses fits together to create the “Big Picture” at each institution, and how those pictures fit together to form bigger statewide pictures. The time allotted in the agenda for the four sessions will include presentations on this subject by speakers, and guided discussion among the participants (numbering between forty and fifty).
Beginning in late June, 2016,  we will be inviting campus leaders to nominate campus representatives, staff and faculty who might benefit from this opportunity.  The dates we have selected this year for AMI are:
October 6 and 7 (Vail)
November 11 (Colorado School of Mines)
January 20 (Front Range Community College – Boulder County Campus)
March 2 and 3 (Colorado Springs)

Please contact us if you have questions about the nomination process.
