A target class of 16-18 participants is enrolled every other year and meets every six weeks in Atlanta. Members of each cohort are diverse in terms of background and administrative practice. Students represent both public and private institutions, nonprofit agencies and government entities. They come together to share their perspective shaped by multiple years of experience in higher education administration.
Cohorts also reflect the diversity in higher education on all levels from institution structure and size to race, gender and region. Alumni cite the cohort model as one of the most engaging and rewarding aspect of the program.
