Will Ingram, Belmont’s chief information officer and associate vice president, was recently selected for the fourth cohort of the Executive Leadership Institute offered by the Tennessee Independent Colleges and Universities Association (TICUA). The Institute includes 14 senior officials from private and independent colleges across the state.
“The Executive Leadership Institute is unlike any other leadership development program in the state and nation, and we are excited to begin the fourth cohort,” said Claude Pressnell, president of TICUA. “Over the next nine months, these senior campus officials will have the opportunity to learn from each other and leaders in higher education about what it takes to build and sustain a healthy campus that helps students succeed.”
The ELI participants, known as Pressnell Fellows, have been selected by their institution’s president to participate. During the course of the program, they will gain knowledge and insight on key issues related to leading higher-education institutions, including institutional governance, educational policy and politics, strategic planning, friend- and fundraising, public relations, internal and external communications, enrollment management, academics and faculty relations, and financial management.
