The second SHEEO/Lumina Academy for State Policy Leadership in Higher Education was held in Denver on October 24-25, 2013. Developed by the State Higher Education Executive Officers and Lumina Foundation, the Academy was designed for individuals whose interests and professional experience are preparing them for senior leadership positions in state higher education policy. The curriculum of the Academy focused on building essential relationships–with governors, legislators, trustees, business leaders, institutional presidents, K-12 leaders, and other higher education constituents–and developing and implementing effective strategies to advance progress toward the national goals of expanding participation and attainment and increasing the quality of student learning.
The Academy Fellows, limited to 25, were selected through a competitive application process. Individuals were encouraged to apply who had an established record of relevant, advanced professional work in colleges and universities, statewide coordinating or governing boards, university or community college systems, the executive or legislative branches of government, governmental or educational associations, or research organizations focused on educational policy. While applicants were given priority whose qualifications merited serious consideration as a candidate for leadership at the CEO level now or in the near future, interest in near term career moves was neither presumed nor required. The application process was confidential until selections were announced and accepted.
