Burke selected to participate in Academic Leaders Network program

BCHS’ Jessica Burke has been selected to participate in the 2021-2022 ACC Academic Leaders Network (ALN) program. This exciting collaborative leadership program is for faculty at ACC institutions who aspire to leadership roles in higher education. Already leading the way, Professor Burke currently serves as Interim Vice Dean, Associate Dean for Academic Affairs, Interim Chair of Infectious Diseases and Microbiology (IDM), and Vice Chair for Education at the Graduate School of Public Health. She will join ALN program sessions at three different ACC institutions throughout the academic year: 1) Virginia Tech will host the first session March 10-12, 2022; 2) Boston College will host the second session June 23-25, 2022; and 3) the University of Virginia will host the third session October 6-8, 2022.
Launched in 2018, the annual ALN program is designed to facilitate cross-institutional networking and collaboration among academic leaders while building leadership capacity for the participating institutions. The ALN provides an opportunity for participants to strengthen leadership competency, to build networks and relations across ACC institutions, to deepen understanding of higher education administration, and to broaden awareness of higher education leadership needs and challenges.
