Alumni Leadership Academy

Learn technical leadership skills while connecting with SUU and alumni peers.

"Great leaders seek out opportunities to learn, grow, improve and help their teams do the same."

-Mindy Benson, President

The Alumni Leadership Academy is a six-week certificate program designed to help you develop technical leadership skills. Offered exclusively to alumni and their friends, you'll learn from SUU alumni who exemplify leadership across the country. By engaging in this leadership program, you'll have many opportunities to reconnect and network with fellow alumni.

Canvas materials will be made available online the day before the start date for self-paced learning. Each week, there will be a live zoom discussion with course facilitators. Live discussions will be focused on the content from the week and will include special guest alumni who will join in discussions as available. The average time commitment for the Alumni Leadership Academy is five hours of learning per week.
