ALTA Task Force

The ALTA task force is a committee charged with the oversight responsibility of the Aggie Leadership Training Academy program. The task force will review and approve essential components of the program and provide leadership, direction, guidance, and support as needed to ensure the success of the program.

Task force members consist of staff management, faculty, select CLPD personnel appointed by the Director of the Center for Learning & Professional Development, and members of the previous ALTA cohort.

The committee members are comprised of three (3) non-voting ex-officio members, two (2) permanent CLPD members, and seven (7) term members. Guests may be invited to participate in committee meetings and will not have voting privileges. The Task force is convened at the beginning of the program development stage for a new program and ends once the program has completed.
