LINC ing: Creating a Regional Consortium for Leadership Development.
Ebbers, Larry H.; And Others
The Leadership Institute for a New Century (LINC) began in 1989 as a consortium formed by Iowa State University, the Iowa Association of Community College Trustees, and the Iowa Association of Community College Presidents. The mission of LINC was to increase the diversity of upper-level administrators at community colleges through developing and enhancing the leadership styles of women and people of color. This report provides an overview of the LINC program. First, a discussion is offered of consortium members and their contributions; LINC's coordination, funding, and organization; academic credit provided for LINC participation; LINC faculty and administration; and the LINC training environment. Next, a LINC recruitment brochure is provided, which describes the institute format, LINC goals and objectives, institute activities, and special features. The program's 1991-92 annual report is then presented, including a table describing the academic program, and an outline of participant's activities and written work for the year. Next, a two-page summary of a study conducted in May 1992 to determine the effectiveness of the LINC program is provided. The summary presents findings of a survey of LINC participants, which yielded a 95.8% response rate (N=45). Finally, the report concludes with lists of national resources persons, state and local resource persons, LINC participants, and a nomination form for participation in the LINC program. (JMC)
