Advancing Leadership Development

How do we cultivate leadership at all levels of the university for the continual advancement of the institution? How can we equip our high-potential leaders with the tools and resources needed for personal and institutional growth?

The Office of the Knowledge Enterprise Architect designs and supports leadership programs and curates tools and resources that can be deployed across the university. We aim to help advance current and emerging leaders along a leadership pathway, embedded in the culture and context of ASU.

The Advanced Leadership Initiative is one such example of a leadership program that serves individuals at ASU who are ready to take their leadership to the next level.
