Emerging Leaders Graduate

Congratulations to the 2018 Northwest Vista College Emerging Leaders group who graduated from the 5 1/2 month program on Tuesday, June 26.

The Alamo Colleges District Emerging Leaders Program is a 5 1/2 month leadership development program founded on Franklin Covey’s process-focused content: Great Leader, Great Teams, Great Results.

The purpose of this program is to prepare high potential employees for leadership opportunities by giving them the necessary mindsets, skillsets and tools to assist them in transitioning into future leadership roles. This workshop is also designed to prepare participants for assignments of greater responsibility.

Participants gain skils to:

  • Inspire trust with peers and supervisors.
  • Connect work to a clear and compelling purpose
  • Align systems for executing on critical priorities.
  • Leverage the talents of peers and co-workers to achieve breakthrough results.

During the process, the graduates also developed a case study, which was presented to the NVC Cabinet team to design and implement a survey for staff and faculty about academic integrity. Feedback will be used to propose recommendations, implement a campaign, and develop a post survey to measure and report the impact. Example questions may include employee understanding of current academic integrity policies; types of violations being seen; clarity of current policies; and potential need for resources and training. To see the Power Point of the study go here: Academic Integrity (2018)
