Action-oriented Programs for Catholic Universities’ Heads and Aspiring Heads
Based on the successful experience of the Rectors’ leadership program, two editions of which have proved very rewarding, several programs are now offered by IFCU to heads of affiliated institutions in order to reinforce their skills and to enable them to draw benefit from the richness brought about by exchange between peers sharing common values and issues.
This Program aims to assist participants to:
understand and analyse the nature and significance of the environmental challenges confronting their institutions
undertake a preliminary evaluation of the missions, health and effectiveness of their institutions
assess how mission can be reinterpreted, contextualised, and evolved in the light of its basic values and contemporary circumstances
develop and refine the outlines of strategic plans for the development of their institutions
assess their own styles of leadership and develop appropriate processes for the effective formulation of policy and the management of challenge
understand the nature of institutional cultures and the relationship with approaches to institutional change
enhance their institutions’ capacity to be agents of societal change in various domains – spiritual, social, educational, ethical, economic and cultural
envision leadership and management approaches.
