CSULB Campus Leaders Join CSU System-Wide Middle Leadership Academy

Published November 8, 2022

A cross-divisional team of CSULB campus community members are participating in the Middle Leadership Academy throughout the 2022-23 academic year. The Middle Leadership Academy is a year-long professional development opportunity that brings together campus-based teams of CSU faculty, student affairs staff, researchers, and students. A CSU system-wide program, this collaborative and supportive environment aims to solve common issues related to student learning, engagement, progression, and completion. The Office of the Provost will assist with coordinating the group as they conceptualize strategies to enhance student success, particularly for culturally diverse students. 

Through the lens of educational equity, the Academy focuses on developing the skills and relationships of middle leaders so they can make meaningful change on their respective campuses. The team, co-led by Director of Faculty Affairs, Ennette Morton, and University Registrar, Meghan Griffith, will attend various sessions throughout the year to engage in MLA Learning Outcomes:

  • Equity. Consider ways (in)equity manifests on campus.
  • Knowledge. Apply research-based evidence to advance equitable student success efforts on campus.
  • Leadership. Build your sense of agency to lead equity-driven change.
  • Relationships. Build relationships with colleagues at your campus and from across the CSU who are involved in campus-level efforts supporting equitable student success.
