OneRED: High-Impact Leadership Program

The OneRED: High-Impact Leadership Program is a strategic growth opportunity for high performing, high potential Director level and above Rutgers staff leaders. Offered in partnership with University Human Resources, Division of Continuing Studies, and Institutional Planning & Operations, it is designed to create a network of leaders with a university-wide, “One Rutgers” perspective, who will play critical roles in shaping the future of the university.

The OneRED: High-Impact Leadership Program combines networking and instruction with focused activities and multiple opportunities to assess and apply leadership styles and strengths. It is designed to build the Leadership competencies that Rutgers has identified, which define the qualities of exemplary leaders and align to our value propositions.

Through the program, leaders will have the opportunity to build an active university-wide network at Rutgers and to exercise their leadership strengths to help build a more diverse, talented, and resilient university.
