Arcus Leadership Program
We’re excited to announce that we’re expanding our comprehensive professional development offerings. AASLH has acquired the Arcus Leadership Program from the SRI Foundation and Cultural History Partners.
What is ARCUS?
ARCUS is a self-paced program that helps those working in the history field to think as entrepreneurs and leaders. It is a unique program in that covers many topics not available anywhere else.
In 2016, more than 150 federal and state agencies, professional associations, nonprofits, and private companies formed the Preservation50 coalition to mark the 50th anniversary of the National Historic Preservation Act. That coalition identified as a top priority the need to develop new and more effective leadership education and development in the preservation, history, and related fields and the ARCUS program was created.
So far, more than 750 learners have completed ARCUS courses, with an additional 175 people completing an intensive fellowship program that has prepared leaders to address the most pressing issues facing the field today.
Who is ARCUS for?
Anyone working in the history field will benefit from the program, particularly those who are emerging professionals, in the middle of their careers, or who are changing to a career in history.
The program also benefits people working in organizations of any size, from small, volunteer-run organizations to larger institutions.
You don’t have to be an AASLH member to participate in ARCUS. However, AASLH members will receive a discount on registrations, with the greatest discount available to individual members. If you’d like to become a member, you can sign up at aaslh.org/membership.
