New 2015-2016 LLA Class Introduced, To Lead LA Community, Technical College Development

BATON ROUGE – The 2015-16 Louisiana Leadership Academy was introduced at The Louisiana Community and Technical College System (LCTCS) Board of Supervisors monthly board meeting on Wednesday, September 9, 2015.

         A key organizational objective is the professional development of faculty, managers and administrative staff, says Louisiana Community and Technical College System (LCTCS) President Monty Sullivan.

         "As one of the fastest growing systems in the country with a critical role in workforce development, it's important that our staff are constantly learning how to problem solve, see the big picture and do their jobs better," Sullivan says.

         In 2014, LCTCS revived a progressive training opportunity for employees, that was initially launched over a decade ago. The Louisiana Leadership Academy was established to develop the skills and talents of mid-level managers and to help groom them for advancement within the system. Twenty-two faculty and staff were selected to participate in the 2015-2016 program.

         "Within any organization, people retire or move on, and it's important to grow leaders from within," says Louisiana Leadership Academy Program Coordinator Jennifer Daly. "It's something other systems of higher education are actively doing across the United States."

         The program, originally titled the Leadership Development Institute, has been redesigned and intensified to give participants a complete understanding of the mission, values and role of a comprehensive community college and how it supports a state's economy.
