Get to Know SRAI’s Senior Executive Institute
The Senior Executive Institute (SEI) provides some space for individuals who have research leadership and management responsibilities with the opportunity to consider topics to enhance their planning and decision-making, to hear from experts and to engage with peers.
The Senior Executive Institute (SEI) is intended for individuals who have research leadership and management responsibilities for their institutions or parts thereof, to provide them with the opportunity to consider topics to enhance their planning and decision-making. SEI provides some space for this, for them to hear from experts and to engage with peers.
And said another way, there are two primary and broad roles of SEI for the Society of Research Administrators International. First, space for research executive leadership engagement/networking. Second, guiding authority on research administration topics of importance: research governance (strategy, capacity, and innovation) and research leadership (oversight, management, and culture).
The Senior Executive Institute achieves its purpose through targeted programming for continued growth and excellence for senior research executives.
The 2021 SEI has been virtual with three ‘engagements’:
- Risk Management
- Using Data to Manage the Research Enterprise
- Culture and Continuous Improvement
Each are independent topics, but also connected. Individual subject matter experts are the speakers and panellists, sharing their expertise and providing a stimulating experience for attendees. The virtual environment allowed us to have international panels as part of the first two engagements.
The Senior Executive Institute (SEI) in 2022 will include one virtual engagement in the Spring/Summer and one in-person event in the Fall. If you want to learn more, or have a suggestion for a topic or a speaker, please contact us direct or via email@example.com.
