The Largest Classroom on Campus

The Executive Leadership Academy (ELA), is a program designed to support mid-to-senior level leaders at the University of Iowa in their efforts to develop, enhance, and apply their leadership skills on campus. 

Once selected to join the academy, members are assigned to a project team. Each project team consists of staff from a variety of departments and units across campus--each member with a unique set of skills and leadership qualities. 

Keeping Up With Teaching Tech

The Academic Technology Advisory Council (ATAC) assists the Provost's Office and CIO in setting directions and priorities for the use of instructional technology needs at the University of Iowa. 

To help committee members create a strategic plan for the technological needs on campus, ATAC hosts an annual Student Technology Panel Discussion during the spring semester.
