What is the LEAD Academy?
The Academy is an intensive one-semester program, with a follow-up group project. The Academy is scheduled from August through December each year and consists of an 11-week, 13-session term. Sessions are held on the Long Beach City College campuses.
The Academy teaches faculty and staff to think beyond their own areas and work as a team to foster stronger relationships and advance institutional goals by focusing on the following key areas:
- Increasing broad-based institutional knowledge, and an integrated view of the college.
- Enhancing communication and inclusiveness.
- Learning effective team-building skills.
The LEAD Academy is perfect for faculty, classified staff, and management team members who want to increase their institutional knowledge and professional skills and Long Beach City College welcomes all those who wish to grow professionally and personally as we strive to help our students achieve success in their lives.
