Staff, Faculty Experience Growth at President's Leadership Institute

Salt Lake Community College President's Leadership Institute was created to provide faculty, staff and administration with an opportunity to learn more about themselves, others they work with and how they can work together to become better leaders. While the college possesses many solid leaders across campus, this Institute is designed to assist in expanding those leadership characteristics and guiding others who are interested in developing stronger leadership skills.

The Institute provides an opportunity for participants to interactively learn more about leadership styles, management tools and higher education administrative operations. All faculty, staff and administration are welcome to take advantage of this opportunity and help Salt Lake Community College become an even greater institution of higher learning. The application form can be found here.

A message from Dr. Roderic Land:

"President’s Leadership Institute is a wonderful opportunity to engage, learn and connect with colleagues from across the college. It gives participants the chance to contribute to the college in a meaningful way while building their own personal brand and toolkit. If you wish to deepen your knowledge base about the college and contemporary issues in higher education, be challenged and explore innovative approaches to advance SLCC’s strategic goals, then we want you in the President’s Leadership Institute."

Dr. Roderic Land, Special Assistant to the President, with SLCC President Deneece G. Huftalin


"The President’s Leadership Institute is a fantastic concept. I got together with colleagues that I would otherwise not see and work through training material together. I was challenged by opposing viewpoints, given insight into aspects of the college’s mission and worked on a hands-on project to implement at the college. Overall, it was a really great experience and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to network, learn great concepts and challenge themselves." --Clint Stoker

“I completed the PLI in my 25th year of working at Salt Lake Community College. Though I’ve held leadership roles during this quarter-century, I’d never taken the time to examine leadership practices: my own and the many others that are out there. The PLI gave me the chance to do this. It also gave me the opportunity to reflect on my career at SLCC and develop relationships with people whom I rarely interact.  For me, the best part of the President’s Leadership Institute is learning about and developing admiration for colleagues all across the different areas of the college. It helped me to renew myself and my relationship to Salt Lake Community College during my 25th year of service.” --Tiffany Rousculp
