Mission:           

EFSC’s Administrative Leadership Intern Program prepares tomorrow’s leaders, with an emphasis on women and minorities, for a career in higher education by offering college wide leadership development opportunities to enhance skills necessary for senior administrative roles.

Description:  

EFSC’s Administrative Leadership Intern Program is an intensive, year-long program providing experiential and immersive learning to selected interns in critical areas of higher education, including but not limited to accreditation, strategic planning, assessment, shared governance, the impact of academic technology and online learning, networking, evidence-based decision-making, ethics, budgeting, diversity, and conflict resolution. The immediate purpose of the program is to cultivate within the selected interns the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to administrative leadership in an environment of rapid change in today’s higher education climate.  The ultimate purpose is to empower the selected interns to determine their career paths to achieve their short- and long-term career goals in higher education.  The program accomplishes this purpose through interns working side-by-side with top-level administrators, faculty, and staff in selected units to further unit goals and initiatives; reading extensively in literature on academic leadership; attending key departmental and Council meetings involving senior leadership across all areas of the college; working with community leaders; writing an extensive journal detailing the internship experience; and completing a capstone project based upon specific career interests and goals.

Participant Outcomes include:
  • Develop higher education leadership skills.
  • Enhance operational knowledge of the College.
  • Develop shared-governance leadership strategies.
  • Develop strategies for continuous learning in administrative leadership.
  • Grow influence in the community.
