LEADERS Institute

The 2024 AAWCC LEADERS Institute will be hosted by Austin Community College in Austin Texas and will take place June 2-7, 2024 at the Doubletree Suites by Hilton-Downtown Austin.

The LEADERS Experience

The national board for the American Association for Women in Community Colleges (AAWCC) supports the advancement of community college women into leadership positions. The LEADERS Institute is a five-day, content-intensive, experiential workshop, based on the AACC Core Competencies for Community College Leaders. In AAWCC, we believe that we lead from where we are, and the LEADERS Institute promotes the development of women’s leadership skills and qualities at every level in community college education and administration. The Institute is designed to prepare women leaders for career opportunities, career advancement, and executive-level leadership positions, including the presidency.

Graduates of the LEADERS Institute are recognized for their excellence in collaboration, encouragement and support for each other, their appreciation that many styles of leadership co-exist, and continuing expansion of their professional talents based on a strong personal foundation.

Over the course of 38 years of successes, LEADERS Institute has established a coalition of more than 6,000 women leaders.
