Enhance programs to develop leadership:

Several meetings to explore desired topics and target audiences have been held among individuals in Academic Affairs and Administration and Finance regarding a program to develop a next generation of Ferris and higher education leaders. The Chairs' Council has offered some suggestions. Tentative plans exist for a June 2 session with David McFarland for the Chairs' Council, with sequel planning for a more comprehensive approach to follow. The ongoing Ferris Employee Leadership Development Program offered through Human Resources continues annually, with 22 participants in this academic year.
