The Association of University Centers on Disability (AUCD) in partnership with the Center for Leadership in Disability at Georgia State University (GSU) is pleased to announce the inaugural AUCD LEADERSHIP ACADEMY.
WHAT IS THE AUCD LEADERSHIP ACADEMY?
The AUCD Leadership Academy is a week-long program designed to enhance the skills of current and emerging leaders from the disability network in building coalitions that will improve systems of supports and services. The AUCD Leadership Academy seeks participants from UCEDDs, LENDs, and their disability partners to come together to immerse themselves for a week of study, shared experiences, self-evaluation, and skill development. Participants will continue to engage with their cohort, academy staff, local coaches, and national allies in the year following the experience. The academy will focus on the exploration of shared values and commitments to civil and human rights, assessments of personal and leadership strengths, skills in building partnerships to achieve collective impact, and establishing personal and professional leadership goals.
