The Academy for Innovation in
Higher Education Leadership

The Academy, a partnership between Arizona State University and Georgetown University, is a premier training ground for those who aspire to senior leadership positions in higher education. The eight-month, design-based program focuses on bringing ideas to practice, linking theory to relevant applications and scaling innovations in teaching and learning, leadership, finance and technology that can transform higher education institutions today and in the future.
The Education Design Lab is providing the design training and project-based learning components for the curriculum.
Graduation Day for Cohort 1, June, 2015.

The Academy curriculum itself is the result of a Lab design process with Georgetown and Arizona State Universities, initiated by noted higher education author, and Academy founder, Jeff Selingo.

Higher education experts consider what attributes and skills are essential to teach at the academy to build a pipeline of “intrapreneurs” at universities.
