Faculty Leadership Institute

2018 FLI

The 2018 Faculty Leadership Institute has been scheduled for January 8-10, 2018. Applications will be posted in Fall 2017.

Description and Expected Outcomes

The inaugural Faculty Leadership Institute launched on January 9-10, 2017. There were 26 participants in the inaugural Faculty Leadership Institute and candidates were drawn from a campus-wide call for applicants and selected through a committee review process. 

As faculty members advance in their academic careers, they need new skills and strategies for managing and leading complex academic initiatives. The Faculty Leadership Institute provides prospective academic leaders with the resources and support they need to guide the University through change and ensure continued excellence.

The Faculty Leadership Institute is designed for faculty members with at least three years of University experience who have responsibility for program coordination, curriculum development, University-wide committee leadership, or aspire to such academic roles. Expected outcomes include:

  • Strengthened skills applicable in current and future academic roles and work

  • Enhanced knowledge of academic committee and program leadership and how differences in style, strategy, and approach affect collaborative work

  • Improved skills for those leading academic programs and committees at the department, college, and University levels

  • Enhanced ability to identify faculty for committee work and future academic leadership roles

  • Increased interactions among faculty across departments
