On October 21st, CONNECT welcomed twenty-one new, aspiring leaders to the first session of its Lead Advisory Leadership Program. For the 5th year, CONNECT has partnered with the Lead Advisory Leadership Group to offer a 7-month, cohort based, virtual leadership development series. This year’s cohort is comprised of participants from each of CONNECT’s six institutions of higher education, as well as our colleagues at Framingham State University. We are delighted you have decided to embark on this learning journey and appreciate each institution’s support of this collaborative learning experience. We’d like to express our gratitude to the Presidents and Chancellor of our participating institutions, as well as the Human Resource Directors and Vice Presidents for their continued support of this initiative.
