Dr. Nicola Blake

Guttman faculty member, and ACE Fellow, Dr. Nicola Blake, facilitated an important panel discussion at this year’s American Association of Community College Summer Presidents Academy Summer Institute (PASI).

The AACC Presidents Academy Summer Institute (PASI) is an annual professional development program for CEOs and presidents of member community colleges, providing intensive focus on current challenges, emerging trends, and opportunities unique to their positions.

The annual three-day institute focuses on issues of critical importance to success in the role of the community college president, providing a mix of content experts and interaction around related case studies that result in the development/acquisition of ready-to-use skill sets that participants can apply back at their respective campuses.

The Institute’s theme this year was the “Stories We Tell.” Dr. Blake’s panel was entitled “Legend, Lore, and Legacies: Presidential Leadership and Institutional Culture” with Carter File, President, Hutchinson Community College, Patricia Hsieh, President, San Diego Miramar College, and Merrill Irving, Jr., President, Hennepin Technical College.
