Library Leadership 2020: Strategies for Flourishing

“Strategies for Flourishing” is the theme for the 2020 Snezek Library Leadership Institute.  The Planning Committee has developed a program that revolves around helping academic library leaders explore, examine, and apply ideas to enable flourishing in trying times.

Covid-19 (CoronaVirus) has caused significant uncertainty in our lives and in the higher education environment.  In reaction, most academic administrators have chosen to close campuses, institute work-at-home policies, issue travel bans for work related travel, and much more.  In light of these unprecedented events, the Snezek Planning Committee is moving the 2020 Snezek Library Leadership Institute to a virtual symposium.

The Institute will have two distinct settings.  The first setting is a one-day seminar.  The second setting is a series of four monthly webinars.  The Planning Committee hopes you will join us for this unique opportunity to continue a professional conversation while adjusting to the unprecedented environment we face.  

One Day Conference ($25.00)

The 2020 Snezek Library Leadership Institute One-Day Conference will be held Thursday, July 16, 2020.  There is no limit on the number of attendees for the conference.  The One-Day Conference registration cost is $25.00.
