EEAI is a program of the Sigma Theta Tau International/
Chamberlain College of Nursing Center for Excellence in Nursing Education
INDIANAPOLIS — The Honor Society of Nursing, Sigma Theta Tau International (STTI) announces the participants in the second cohort of the Emerging Educational Administrator Institute (EEAI). This program is possible due to a generous grant from the Chamberlain College of Nursing.
The EEAI is a highly selective 12-month institute designed for experienced faculty who aspire to become administrators or those who are in their first administrative position for three years or less. The Institute is comprised of three phases: online education and assigned readings; a face-to-face workshop; and completion of a self-selected leadership project.
To achieve a strong foundation for leadership development, the EEAI utilizes a leadership triad approach, which is comprised of a Scholar, Mentor, and Faculty member. Each Scholar chooses a more experienced faculty Mentor to guide his or her leadership journey, and a Faculty member serves as a resource to the Scholar and Mentor.
Following the completion of EEAI, participants can expect to:
1. Create an administrative career path.
2. Develop knowledge and skills related to the administrator role in academe.
3. Apply best practices to administrative actions, decisions, and communications.
4. Develop as an administrator in one of three academic missions (education, research, or service).
