The UZH Leadership and Governance Academy works to promote and develop an understanding of leadership that takes into consideration the specific challenges presented within an academic context. In a culture where all UZH staff share a common vision of leadership and collaboration, the "UZH way of leadership" can flourish.
In recent years, the UZH has undertaken sustained efforts to professionalize skills and processes in leadership and governance and has developed continuing education programs to support this goal. The Academy acts as an umbrella structure, bringing together the diverse continuing education courses and consultancy services aimed at UZH leaders and managers and maintains close contact with the respective providers. It supports UZH leaders and managers in fulfilling their leadership and management responsibilities and offers tailored events and resources for the diverse challenges in everyday academic leadership.
