Leadership Tech Cohort One Presents Projects

Members of Leadership Tech cohort one have completed their two-year course by submitting plans for innovation projects designed to support the strategic plan of Arkansas Tech University.

The innovation projects are the focus of year two of the two-year Leadership Tech program. Five teams consisting of Leadership Tech cohort one members recently presented their project concepts and results to an audience that included members of the ATU executive council.

“The graduates of Leadership Tech cohort one are to be congratulated for their application of a critical question — what if? — to create projects that take innovative, collaborative approaches to opportunities we have for improvement at Arkansas Tech University,” said Dr. Mary B. Gunter, who along with Dr. Jeff Mott guided the members of Leadership Tech cohort one on their journey. “The results of their efforts are projects that are making and will continue to make a genuine contribution to fulfilling the promise of our institutional strategic plan, mission statement and vision statement.”

Below are the innovation projects conceived by Leadership Tech cohort one and an executive summary of each:
