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 in 2021 and 2022. Our next program will be held on Wednesdays, January 10 - February 14, 2024. We will announce when applications are open through the RF Focus Groups. Email learning@rfsuny.org if you are interested.

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