Cultivating the Higher Education Leadership Pipeline: Part 4

On “Talent Talks” with Hunt Scanlon Media, host Rob Adams speaks with AGB Institute for Leadership & Governance Director Dr. Nancy Zimpher and AGB Search Managing Principal Dr. Rod McDavis on “Cultivating the Higher Education Leadership Pipeline.”

What impact would you like to see the AGB Institute for Leadership & Governance make? Why should aspiring higher education presidents attend?

Drs. McDavis and Zimpher would accurately use the word “happy” to describe their feelings regarding the Institute’s success. The institute was designed to assist leaders in forging their path towards a higher education presidency, and with forty graduates and six successful presidential appointments, McDavis and Zimpher are enthusiastic about the impact the Institute will make in higher education. “It will create an opportunity for women and people of color to experience the high-level preparation of serving as a President or Chancellor. As a result of the institute, there will be a lot more people ready to step up and have that capstone experience in their careers,” says McDavis.
