Last year nearly 80 senior academic leaders, administrators and managers from across Canada gathered in Winnipeg from June 10 to 15, 2018 for CHERD’s Senior University Administrators Course (SUAC) and University Management Course (UMC). Offering programs in Winnipeg, provided a unique opportunity for joint sessions with expert guest speakers. Building on this model, the 2019 Flagship Programs will again be offered at the same time and same place. Join us for a week of exceptional Higher Education Professional Development in Winnipeg.

The course provides participants with the skills and knowledge to build and enhance leadership and management skills and manage more effectively and efficiently in a continually changing higher education environment.
