In order for the arts to impact society at large and our local communities specifically, they require leadership that understands how to use the AAAE recognized curriculum standards of institutional leadership and management, financial management, and strategic planning.  This panel will focus on the very core of the arts and cultural organization--good governance, and it will explore a number of cases of coursework, education, and best practices in teaching governance that develop arts leaders capable of driving change.  The panel will offer a robust and insightful discussion of how we, as arts administration educators, are teaching governance in our classrooms, connecting it with the needs and/or demands of the industry at large, and preparing our students for arts and cultural leadership roles.
