The Administrative Management Institute (AMI), one of the country’s top professional development opportunities in higher education, will be back on campus this summer after a two-year hiatus.
The 30-year-old program brings together college and university administrators, business managers, directors, and department heads from universities around the country for an intensive four-day seminar cosponsored by Cornell’s School of Continuing Education (SCE) and the Eastern Association of College and University Business Officers (EACUBO).
AMI, which takes place August 8 to 11, 2022, will feature presentations, panel discussions and workshops designed to help higher education professionals enhance their effectiveness within their institutions. This year, participants will explore timely topics such as data-informed decision-making, leadership skills for a hybrid workforce and understanding unconscious bias during the hiring process.
“We launched AMI 30 years ago to help business officers and managers in higher education gain practical knowledge, develop their leadership skills and build their networks,” said Charles W. Jermy, Jr., interim dean for SCE. “Over the years, participants have used this intensive learning experience to successfully launch careers, change careers or advance careers. This year, AMI sessions comprise a wide range of critical topics, including an in-depth training on ‘The Art and Science of Leadership in a Hybrid Environment,’ led by Ken and Scott Blanchard.”
