Exclusive To DET/CHE Members

our goal

To support DET/CHE members in developing essential leadership skills for higher education. Designed using a cohort model, this 8-month long program will culminate at DET/CHE 2022. Participants will complete the program by attending 8 monthly online presentations and discussions led by CA Higher Ed leaders on the challenges, successes, skills and issues facing today’s ed tech leaders. Participants will complete the program with a final project centered around a real world challenge at their institution or in higher education, more generally.

Monthly meetings (1.5 hours) will be led by California Higher Ed decision makers, thought leaders, information strategists and innovators who will lead a collaborative forum for information sharing and dialog.

All DET/CHE members are encouraged to participate. 

Formal application to the program is only required by those members interested in earning a Certificate of Completion. 

Expectations for completion of the program include: attendance at monthly leadership program meetings and a final project demonstrating a leadership plan and presentation to be shared with other participants.

We encourage you to register for either option.

Please join us for the 2022 DET/CHE Leadership Program. Members can participate in a cohort to earn a Certificate of Completion or simply join to learn more about Ed Tech leadership in the CA Higher Ed system.
