Career & Professional Employees Commission Presents: Are You Ready? Preparing Unlikely Leaders in Higher Education for the Ever-Changing Demands of an Unforeseen World

Each generation of community college leaders has faced new leadership challenges. In the early 1980s, community colleges began being regarded nationally as an in-place delivery system for workforce development as a result of the downturn in the economy. What followed was an emphasis on job training. Now, in the third decade of the 21st century, we see vast transformations in the community college landscape that includes shifts in student learning, global leadership, diversity, workforce training and skill-development, and technology to serve students with on-demand learning. It is predicted that by 2025, nearly 40% of all community college presidents will retire and half of all jobs will be replaced by artificial intelligence. Who will step forward to lead the colleges of tomorrow? Are community college leaders ready for the coming shifts in learning and technology? Furthermore, are YOU prepared to step into even greater realms of leadership? This session is purposed to inspire, challenge, enlighten and motivate you to take bold steps and fulfill your calling to lead as never before.
