Sample Customized Academic Program: Higher Education Leadership Lecture Series

As part of its commitment to providing high-quality education and administration, an overseas university requested a short-term professional enrichment training for a group of deans and deputy directors. This university wanted specific administrators to gain a deeper understanding of American education philosophy, management methods, and innovation in higher education. To help accomplish this goal, we created a full-time F-1 eligible program for them. This customized training was offered on the UW Seattle campus.

Program Description

This seven-day program provided an opportunity for visiting university administrators, deans, and faculty with administrative roles to learn about the American higher education system – including structures, philosophies, and approaches. A team of highly qualified higher education administration practitioners at UW facilitated a series of interactive instructional sessions on topics such as leadership, management, strategy, innovation, and assessment & evaluation. As part of this training, participants also attended two educational site visits led by a UW instructor to gain a broader perspective of higher educational institutions in the United States.

UW IELP can offer programs focusing on a variety of content areas. Contact us with your request to find out more.
