Leadership development

Logo LGEU4

The quality of higher education leadership, while becoming ever-more challenging, is central to the well-being of universities. The expectations and responsibilities of higher education institutions are expanding while the local and global context is continuously changing with leadership becoming more complex. To support new and future leaders of Higher Education Institutions, the International Association of Universities (IAU) has developed a leadership programme entitled: Leading Globally Engaged Universities (LGEU). Discover the brochure here!


Who should take part?

The programme is for successful institutional leaders who wish to extend their experience by engaging with peers from other countries. It is of particular value to those in senior leadership roles:

  • Recently appointed Rectors/Vice Chancellors/Presidents
  • Deputy/Pro Vice Chancellor/ Vice Provost /Vice President/Vice Rector or equivalent.
  • Senior professional service leaders at Registrar/Chief Operating Officer level or equivalent.

To gain maximum benefit from the programme, participants will be expected to be comfortable and confident conversing and engaging with others in English.

What are the benefits of participating?

The participants will gain:

  • ideas and insights from leaders from other universities in all regions of the world that will inform the strategic developments in their institution;
  • data and information as well as greater appreciation of how these can shape the direction of their university and higher educaiton in different national contexts;
  • knowledge about theory and practice of institutional leadership, management and governance;
  • the opportunity to become part of a global network of peers;
  • international perspectives on national/local challenges and opportunities.

Over time, the wider community of participants from successive programme sessions will create a unique international network of colleagues, a resource which will be of considerable long-term value to the participants and their institutions. Beyond the individual, the programme also benefits each institution since LGEU graduates will bring back ideas and approaches from other contexts that can be adapted and implemented at home. Institutions will gain from the rich bank of resources made available and from the network established among peers in different parts of the world. LGEU will act as a catalyst for the establishment of partnerships and longer-term collaborations between participants and their respective institutions.
