Leadership Academy

The Leadership Academy (LA) is a premier professional development program offered exclusively to eligible full-time faculty and senior-level administrators recognized as rising leaders. Now in its 13th year, the Leadership Academy continues to demonstrate Temple University’s commitment to building and sustaining the institution’s leadership capacity by preparing high-potential organizational leaders for new or increasingly complex leadership roles.
