Senior Executive Institute

Senior Executive Institute (SEI)

At the Senior Research Executive Institute (SEI) we learn to develop, enhance and grow the research enterprise and programs. The 1.5 day workshop/retreat is intended for individuals and teams who have research leadership and management responsibilities for their institutions (Vice Presidents, Assistant Vice Presidents, and Directors).

Through presentations, case studies and group discussions, participants explore research challenges, relationships and discover important innovative ideas and techniques for leadership and management.  

As a group, over 1.5 days, we will focus on fresh ideas, best practice success strategies and modern thinking aimed at generating ideal outcomes for the research scenarios presented and discussed.
