Mission of The National Academy
The National Academy for Academic Leadership is the first organization in the United States specifically established to provide an integrated curriculum in academic leadership. Through active involvement with The National Academy, administrators and faculty are developing the knowledge and skills to effect systemic institutional change. By strengthening academic leadership, The National Academy plays a key role in transforming the effectiveness of teaching and learning in colleges and universities.

- provides consultation and planning services on campuses and offer rigorous courses, workshops, and seminars in cooperation with other higher education organizations.
- provides a resource-rich Web site for people in key leadership roles: board members, presidents, vice presidents, deans, department chairs, and faculty members.
