July 10, 2015 Dr. Eric LaMott Selected for National Leadership Development Program

Concordia University, St. Paul is pleased to announce that Dr. Eric LaMott, Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, is one of 23 senior-level administrators in higher education nationwide selected by the Council of Independent Colleges (CIC) to participate in a year-long Executive Leadership Academy.

Individuals chosen for the program are vice presidents or cabinet officers in higher education who aspire to the presidency of an independent college or university. LaMott will participate in two seminars held in Washington, DC, as well as readings, webinars, and a mentoring program. In addition, he will develop an experiential learning plan focused on specific areas of presidential responsibility.

The Academy is designed to prepare provosts and vice presidents to serve as effective college presidents. “Competition for the available places in the program was intense,” said CIC President Richard Ekman. “The review committee found the nomination materials to be most impressive. They (and I) believe that Dr. LaMott has the potential for highly effective leadership as a college or university president.”

“The CIC’s Executive Leadership Academy is a highly competitive professional development opportunity for senior leaders in higher education.  I am not at all surprised that Eric LaMott was selected to participate,” said Concordia President Dr. Tom Ries. “He is an incredibly gifted person and over the past twenty years has played many key roles in helping Concordia University evolve into the strong, comprehensive Lutheran university that it is today.”

Since the program began in the 2009–2010 academic year, 53 percent of program participants who have completed the program have advanced to higher positions. “These indicators suggest that CIC is helping to meet the leadership needs of higher education by offering highly effective leadership development programs for modest fees to member institutions,” Ekman said.

The Academy is co-sponsored by CIC, the American Academic Leadership Institute (AALI), and the American Association of State Colleges and Universities. Tom Kepple, president of AALI and president emeritus of Juniata College (PA), is the program director.

July 9, 2015 Concordia Introduces Doctor of Education (Ed.D) Program

Concordia University, St. Paul is expanding its degree offerings with the addition of a Doctor of Education (Ed.D) program. The program offers core coursework in leadership; a strong emphasis on research; and a synthesis of the two in practical field experiences with an emphasis in a theme, topic of interest and/or area of specialization on which the student can focus their study.

“This doctorate program will allow students from diverse settings to come together, learn from each other’s expansive professional experiences, solve common problems together, and collectively construct knowledge that will prepare them to effectively and competently face the challenges inherent in organizations.” Dean of the College of Education and Science Don Helmstetter said.

Helmstetter said the main goal of the program is to give students the tools and skills to become effective leaders for present and future generations through exercises and assignments that require students to engage in creative, constructive responses to real-life situations. Helmstetter will help oversee the launch of this program. 

The program will begin this fall with a pre-selected group of students and will open to all applicants in Spring 2016.
