Collaborative Team-Based Learning
Summer Institute is a unique educational experience designed for CEOs and their teams to learn about a selected theme from world-class learning partners. AFIT learning partners are recognized quality leaders in their field and have demonstrated success with the selected theme. The themes are strategically chosen based on members’ needs, and they build on each other from one year to the next. During the program, teams participate in interactive learning activities and benefit from “team time” to discuss key concepts and translate them into actionable solutions that fit their institution’s needs.

Summer Institute Program
Transforming the Higher Education
It’s no secret that there are considerable challenges facing higher education institutions and related organizations. The teaching and learning methods of the past are becoming obsolete, and time-worn processes have all but lost their effectiveness. No longer will the “take no action” or “move forward with incremental change” mindsets sustain operations; innovation and organizational transformation must become a priority. Join us at the 2018 Summer Institute to learn how to lead this change at your organization.
Leadership Development Institute Program
The Leadership Development Institute is aimed at developing new or future leaders at higher education institutions and affiliated organizations that embrace and champion innovation and continuous quality improvement. Participants will gain tangible leadership training around topics that may not be covered in other leadership programs. The program is designed to help participants create networking relationships with and between other AFIT leaders. Learn more>>
