There is no comparable experience for Canadian senior university administrators. SUAC’s rich mixture of participants and course leaders from various institutional, disciplinary and professional backgrounds presents a unique opportunity. Immersed in the Canadian university context, participants work on topics of common interest, sharing insights and experiences and developing new approaches to their own problems.
This program has been part of the tradition of higher education administration for over 20 years and was redeveloped in 2007. It embraces a more integrated approach to the multi-faceted problems confronting today’s university leaders. It is committed to active learning, taking full advantage of the wealth of skills and experience that participants and course leaders bring to the program.
