AMI Participant 2018-19 Projects

CNWL AMI LOGO 1

A HIGHLIGHT OF SELECT PROJECTS

Each year, AMI participants select a project to pursue over the year that will contribute to their growth as leaders in higher education or to their institution, or both. In years past, AMI has encouraged participants to conduct interviews with key leaders on their campus to facilitate their career advancement. In recent years, AMI has broadened the project to include the diverse ways that women leaders may wish to contribute to their colleges. A sampling of the 2018-19 cohort's projects include:
