Associate Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs Laura Goodwin recently announced that Professor and Associate Dean Callie Rennison was selected as one of four individuals from the CU Denver and Anschutz campuses to attend the Academic Management Institute (AMI) for Women.
The AMI program serves women in higher education throughout Colorado and Wyoming, and is sponsored by the Colorado Network of Women Leaders, the state affiliate of the American Council on Education’s Office of Women. Approximately 1,000 women from nearly 30 institutions have participated in the program during its history.
Professor Rennison was nominated by Nelia Viveiros and selected because of her strong potential to assume leadership positions at University of Colorado Denver or in higher education in general, as well as her past accomplishments.
“I am honored to be selected for this opportunity,” says Rennison. “I look forward to using what I learn, and the connections I make, to benefit CU Denver.”
The 2016-17 AMI program will include four seminars on topics in higher education leadership — such as managing change, political savvy, effective leadership, diversity and inclusion, and career development strategies. Each participant will complete a project at her home institution and interview senior-level administrators on campus.
The seminars take place in Vail; Golden (at Colorado School of Mines); Boulder (at Front Range Community College, Boulder Campus); and, Colorado Springs.
