CIRRUS Leadership Meeting 2024

Cirrus Leadership Meeting in Vilnius, April 10-12, 2024 at VAA, Lithuania
April 11-12th, 2023


About the Seminar:
This seminar offers a unique platform for leaders of CIRRUS network universities to connect, share experiences, and tackle common leadership challenges in higher education design. It’s an exclusive opportunity to delve into sensitive leadership topics in a confidential setting, something you might not be able to do with your peers.

In line with CIRRUS board’s decision, we will welcome one representative from each institution. Our focus will be on the nuances of leadership roles, personal challenges as leaders, and fostering a supportive network among our peers.
