CIC Academic Leadership Program
The Committee on Institutional Cooperation (CIC) Academic Leadership Program (CIC-ALP) is designed to develop the leadership and managerial skills of faculty who have demonstrated exceptional ability and administrative promise. It is specifically oriented to the challenges of academic administration of major research universities and to the preparation of faculty members to meet those challenges. The CIC is an academic consortium of Big Ten universities and the University of Chicago.
Each year, Purdue competitively selects up to six faculty members to participate in the program that meets three times for two and a half days on the various participating campuses. Purdue Fellows meet monthly with administrators on their own campus to learn about various administrative functions.
