The Community College Leadership Development Institute

In 2000, the Community College Leadership Development Institute (CCLDI) set out to develop a leadership program based on the values and skills most needed by community college leaders. It held two design workshops to identify those underlying values and skills. The design workshop participants were trustees, CEOs, senior administrators, faculty and classified staff leaders from the regions served by Western Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges--California, Hawaii and the Western Pacific Islands. Following the design workshops, senior staff of the Center for Creative Leadership (CCL) assisted in the development of the leadership activities. The design participants agreed the training should aim to improve the organizational capacity to conduct the collective work of community colleges rather than solely the ability of individual leaders. To accomplish this aim, the designers envisioned four training components--(1) A leadership academy; (2) policy seminars; (3) executive coaching; and (4) research dissemination. The overall response to the program has been very positive and word-of-mouth referrals for the 2004 Academy are high. Based on the first two years of CCLDI programs, it is clear there is a great need and hunger for broad leadership development programs throughout community colleges.
