About the ACCLAIM Program

The ACCLAIM Program is a cross-disciplinary leadership program developed by Dr. Amelia Drake and the late Dr. Paul Godley in collaboration with the UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health.

The ACCLAIM program’s method of leadership development differentiates leadership from the positional use of authority and supports “leadership at all levels.” The model emphasizes leadership that requires critical thinking through suspending mental models and engaging with stakeholders.

The program is designed specifically for those with direct responsibility for educational programs or courses, or for those whose work includes a focus on teaching.
