The Center for Persons with Disabilities at Utah State University

UCEDD Leadership Institute

Association of University Centers on Disability is announcing a new opportunity for leadership development within the UCEDD Network.  With the support of ADD and in collaboration with the National Leadership Consortium on Developmental Disabilities at the University of Delaware directed by Steve Eidelman and Nancy Weiss, AUCD will be offering the first UCEDD Leadership Institute.  It will be held June 24 to 29, 2012 in Newark Delaware. 

The institute will be held over 5 and a half days, will require some advance preparation and probably some extensive post-institute work.  It is modeled on the very successful National Leadership Consortium on DD that our Delaware colleagues have been running for the past several years.

The institute will be limited to 25 participants – each to be nominated by their host UCEDDs and they hope to run the institute each year for the next four years.  The intent is to foster leadership within the network.  This is an ideal opportunity for new and emerging leadership to cultivate the skills we seek in building our program.
