The Ministry of Education for Aruba has approved funding for a one-year post–graduate program on collaborative leadership beginning in March 2014. The program will be coordinated by the University of Aruba and focus on the education section. Janet Sanders will return to Aruba 4 times in 2014 to teach in this program.
The approval and funding for the program is in part due to the trip that Richard Sims and Janet Sanders made to Aruba in October 2013 to do an evening presentation and 1.5 day workshop on collaborative leadership using a Social Artistry approach. They shared with the participants the model of doing human capacity (personal/interpersonal) and social capacity (organization/culture) development. At that time the school committed to explore the development of a 1 year post-graduate program on collaborative leadership.
