John F. Kucia Leadership Academy (JFKLA)

The concepts of Leadership in Balance: New Habits of the Mind create the foundation for the distinctive brand of leader that will be cultivated at Xavier University through the John F. Kucia Leadership Academy.

The JFKLA is designed to provide high performing supervisors, department chairs and managers who have been identified by their supervisors as ready to move into a position of increased leadership within the next few years, with a broader and deeper understanding of the myriad of functions performed by offices across Xavier University and the challenges faced at Xavier and by higher education in the United States.  This cohort-based certificate program is intended to increase the leader’s capacity to contribute to Xavier’s mission and goals, increase collaboration among administration and academics, and foster greater organizational engagement among participants.
