Clarksville, Ark. ---Dr. Dan Taddie, vice president for academic affairs and dean of faculty at University of the Ozarks, recently attended the Harvard Institute for Educational Management at Harvard University in Cambridge, Mass..
Dr. Taddie was one of 94 higher education senior leaders chosen from across the United States and five other countries to attend the two-week program. The program was taught by Harvard professors as well as administrators from throughout the country.
Topics included internal and external leadership, developing and working with senior leadership teams, governance, finance, assessment, campus community, innovation and change in a changing environment, technology, transformational learning, planning, vision and values.
"It was an intense and stimulating two weeks,” Dr. Taddie said. “The combination of current research and practical experience brought to the institute by the faculty was truly engaging and inspiring. The opportunity to share and work with colleagues from around the country and the world enriched the experience immeasurably. I am deeply grateful to have had this opportunity, and I return to Ozarks with greater knowledge and skill to bring to our common work."
