The Richard F. Stevens Institute for chief student affairs officers (CSAOs) is the premier executive training program for a small and select group of student affairs leaders. The Institute is a retreat with a mission - to enhance and develop articulated CSAO competencies at an advanced level. This Institute is sponsored by the James E. Scott Academy and is for the most senior student affairs officer on a campus, specifically, individuals who report directly to the president or provost who are in charge of the entire student affairs division/department.
The 2013 Institute will focus on preparing CSAOs to lead through change and with entrepreneurial skill.

Your learning will be guided by seasoned CSAOs and other thought leaders from outside of higher education. Institute topics include:

More than just an intensive training and learning experience, the Stevens Institute is a program that emphasizes building good decision-making and is committed to rejuvenating decision makers. Set in a supportive and relaxing environment, the Institute is an opportunity to recharge, reenergize and refresh with colleagues committed to nurturing the balance necessary to make the sound - and often difficult - decisions that help our students to grow and learn and provide leadership for the advancement of the institution and division.
