At last week’s Presidents Academy Summer Institute, we had an agenda full of timely sessions about trends, initiatives, and opportunities that affect the institutions we serve and how we lead them into the future. We discussed apprenticeships, the Pathways Project, legislative changes, crisis management, and presidential transitions, among other topics. Thank you to those who participated in one of the largest PASI gatherings. I hope you walked away refreshed and with new insights and ideas. For those who weren’t able to attend, we encourage you to join us in 2019 in Atlanta.
