Preparing the next generation of leaders

The Leadership Development Program for Executives is for employees in the Division of University Outreach and Engagement, the Division of Extended Campus, and the College of Agricultural Sciences. Participants should have significant professional experience within their assignment and a documented record of performance that indicates potential success in an executive leadership position.

The 2017/18 cohort will conclude in September 2018, but we are now accepting applications for the 2018/19 LDPE Program! To apply for the 5th cohort of LDPE, please submit your application in full by September 1, 2018.
