CAAMP is a program of The Academy for Academic Leadership (AAL).
According to AAL project manager Becky Zang, CAAMP is a top-notch leadership and management course designed specifically for department chairs and academic administrators within colleges and schools of the health professions. Since its inception in 2009, over 250 administrative leaders from institutions over the country have participated in CAAMP.
CAAMP participants developed their leadership abilities through assessments and through peer feedback and individualized, professional coaching. Sessions included learning to lead, managing new tasks and challenges, faculty performance and assessment, strategic planning and budgeting, conflict management, work-life balance, and legal issues in academia. Drs. Astle and Livengood's participation in CAAMP demonstrated their strong commitment to academic leadership.
