The inaugural Faculty Leadership Institute will launch on January 9-10, 2017. Participation in the inaugural Faculty Leadership Institute will be limited to 20 committed candidates drawn from a campus-wide call for applicants and selected through a committee review process. The number of candidates accepted for the program can increase in the future.

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.

  • 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
