2016 Collaborative Leadership Symposium Gallery

In March 2016, Morningside Area Alliance hosted a successful leadership training. Forty-five professionals, working in positions as varied as security, alumni relations, health administration, student affairs, and chief administrators, enjoyed an in-depth professional development program while building relationships with colleagues across Morningside Heights. The 2017 Morningside Communications Symposium builds on this program and responds to the most pressing needs facing emerging leaders today.

Is This Event For Me?

  • Ever looked out at your meeting and thought, “No one has any idea what I’m saying….”
  • Ever wonder why your colleague is asking you this question even though you spelled it all out in your email?
  • Is it time to hone both your professional and personal messages?

The ability to communicate, cooperate, and collaborate is hugely important in today’s interconnected work environment – but it’s not easy and for many of us, requires a shift in approach, and some needed skill-building.

The Communications Symposium has been customized for the staff of Morningside Area academic and nonprofit institutions.  This program is right for you if:

  • You are NOT a marketing or communications professional.
  • You work at an academic, religious, or cultural institution.
  • You want to improve your effectiveness in promoting yourself and your work internally.
  • You have worked in your field for more than 5 years.
