The Center for Leadership Excellence serves all schools and units at the University and in partnership with the Medical Center. The Center is an initiative jointly sponsored by Pat Hogan, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer (EVP/COO) and Dr. Rick Shannon, Executive Vice President of Health Affairs (EVPHA), and supported by University Human Resources. It is endorsed with the full support of the President and her Cabinet. The Center is a key component in the University’s strategic Cornerstone Plan, and its purpose is to encourage, support, and provide opportunities for the ongoing growth and development of each employee.
