June 16-19, 2019 | Atlanta, Georgia | hosted by the Associated Colleges of the South 

 2019 Summer Institute Tentative Schedule


The ACL Summer Institute consistently receives high marks from participants – which have included college presidents working to start a consortium, new executive directors, senior consortial staff and faculty leading collaborative projects. The ACL Summer Institute’s three-day curriculum is taught in an interactive workshop format with class sizes ranging from 12- 20 participants, and experienced consortium leaders serving as faculty. 



Over the course of three days, you will learn what makes collaboration work; what derails it; and how to engage in consortial work through a curriculum that ensures participants understand a body of knowledge leading to effective collaboration. 


The curriculum covers:

·         An overview of consortial leadership, highlighting a range of organizational structures across consortia

·         Collaboration, leadership, governance and vision

·         Strategic planning, action plans and assessment to bring mission and goals into reality

·         Communicating within and about the consortium - strategies and tactics for sharing your good work

·         Financial strategies and techniques


Participants will work on a capstone project through the entire institute, and leave the institute with clear action plans and a way forward to implement their project upon returning to their organization. 



 ACL Institute faculty are leaders in higher education collaboration who have expertise in their subject area and deep experience in consortial work.
