Senior University Administrators Course (SUAC)

SUAC is a five-day residential program for senior academic leaders including presidents, rectors, principals, provosts, vice presidents, associate vice presidents, deans, associate deans, registrars, chief librarians, and senior directors of service.

Offered by the Centre for Higher Education Research and Development (CHERD) at the University of Manitoba, SUAC has been part of the higher education administration landscape for over 30 years. Revised annually, it embraces an integrated approach to the multi-faceted challenges facing today’s university leaders. The program utilizes an active learning approach by taking full advantage of the wealth of skills and experience of participants and course leaders.

Program objectives
The goal of SUAC is to bring together a rich mixture of participants and course leaders from various institutional, disciplinary and professional backgrounds to create a unique opportunity to work on topics of common interest. The benefit of shared insights and experiences will enable participants to develop new approaches to personal practice.

Delivery methods
SUAC is a five-day residency program.
All course materials are provided virtually along with pre-course reading materials.


Nomination process
Participants are nominated to SUAC by their home institutions. Universities and colleges can nominate individuals who have records of achievement in their academic or professional work, people who are motivated to enhance their leadership skills, and/or those who are interested in the benefits to be obtained from attending a specialized leadership development program.

Applications will be available shortly.
