What is the AVC Leadership Academy?
The AVC Leadership Academy is a yearlong leadership training and
education program created as an opportunity for 12 AVC employees and
four student leaders to develop a broader foundational understanding of
the role and operation of Antelope Valley College. The program will focus
on encouraging leadership growth among AVC employees who are seeking
to ascend into management roles within their constituent group or in other
areas of the college. The graduating Academy class will be responsible for
assisting in development of the curriculum for the following year and will
participate in the selection of the new Academy members.
What does the AVC Leadership Academy include?
Those selected for the AVC Leadership Academy will participate in a
sequence of seminars that will include internal and external speakers,
presentations, and learning sessions. The curriculum will be based on the
college mission and how it is currently accomplished. Leadership,
communications, and planning strategies will be addressed and discussed
within each session.
