Leadership development program May 4, June 6, & 23

March 24, 2011

Colorado State's conviction that leadership and learning are indispensable to each other is in keeping with the results of a recent survey of best leadership practices in 247 colleges which found that leadership training is critical to developing productive, accountable, and engaging work environments.

The Chronicle's <em>Great Colleges to Work For</em> program recognized colleges, among other things, for confidence in leadership. The Chronicle of Higher Education 2009 Best Colleges to Work For reported the results of an extensive survey of 247 colleges focusing on the practices that created effective work environments.

The best practices they discovered highlight the importance of leadership and professional development in the creation of a productive, accountable and engaging work environment.
