What People Say


Dr. Yaser Alsahafi

Taibah University

“Being a new faculty in a developing school, I was constantly in a position where a lot was expected from me without guidance from senior faculty. This program gave me the tools and basic training that made me more aware of my current skills and how to find new resources for future development. My future courses at Taibah University College of Dentistry will never be the same after ITL.”


Elvin Hernandez

Loma Linda University, School of Pharmacy

CAAMP and AAL provide a robust coverage of topics for newly appointed and mid-career administrative faculty to review in terms of leadership skills, effective communication, and conflict resolution. It is an outstanding forum to interact with experts and participants who are nationally known and well-credentialed.


Waldemar D. Polido

Indiana University School of Dentistry

This program is excellent for anyone involved in an academic leadership position that desires to learn, develop skills and excel. Great in every aspect.


Andrea Knopp

James Madison University, School of Nursing

I came away from the CAAMP with a great appreciation for the foundational concepts reinforced in the sessions and appreciation for leadership. As I look forward, I will use the assessments, coaching and case studies to practice engaging leadership in my role. Thank you for the time to focus on developing my academic leadership skills that will continue far beyond the end of the program.


Dr. N. Shaun Matthews DDS, MD

A wonderfully diverse and inclusive program which caters to those aspiring to be the leaders of the future and those already established as the leaders of the present.
