Leaders are responsible for providing direction, guidance, motivation, and inspiration to others. They provide solutions, give advice, and answer the hard questions. But what about them? Who do they go to when they need help?

The RF for SUNY Leadership Elevation Sessions provides participants knowledge, tools, and templates to elevate their abilities while also having the opportunity to ask questions, brainstorm ideas, and discuss the difficulties, distractions, and roadblocks unique to them.

We have held two successful cohorts. A 7-week program in 2021 an an 8-week program in 2022. Please stay tuned as to when the next online live or in-person leadership elevation retreat will be offered. We will announce upcoming programs through the RF Focus Groups.

All RF/SUNY employees working in Research Administration and Commercialization, directly or indirectly, are welcome to apply.
