CAAMP Runs July 29-31, 2019
One of most difficult jobs in academia is taking on the mantle of administration. The Chairs and Academic Administrators Management Program, or CAAMP, is a hands-on workshop that is designed to address the unique challenges faced by new, current, and aspiring administrators.
Over the course of this on site three day program, CAAMP immediately engages its participants with one-on-one guidance from top practicing professionals. Group discussions, case studies, role playing, interactive exercises, and presentations help build and support your professional and personal growth. By focusing on creating a clear bridge between theory and practice, CAAMP will provide you with new tools and leave you looking at your role through a widened administrative lens.
Completing CAAMP provides an AAL CAAMP Certificate. Continuing education credits (CE’s) are also available, please contact AAL Vice President Dr. Felicia Tucker-Lively if you have any questions.

“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.”
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.

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