Emerging Leaders Program

Call for Applications/Nominations: 2018-2019 Emerging Leaders Program

 

The Office of the Provost, together with the Institute for Leadership and Entrepreneurship and the Office of Graduate Education and Faculty Development, is proud to welcome nominations and applications for the third cohort of the Emerging Leaders Program. Launched in 2016, the program is designed for associate and full professors who have attained tenure or are on the tenure track. The nine-month program will begin in August and include monthly workshops, as well as a weekend workshop in September. 

Participant commitments:

  • Attend all sessions
    • Most sessions will be held on selected Friday afternoons. Participants are asked to adjust teaching and other commitments accordingly. Participants must be available to attend the weekend retreat at Barnsley Gardens.
    • About eight workshops scheduled on select Friday afternoons between August 2018 and May 2019 (2-4 hour sessions)
  • Small team work in between workshops.
  • Participate in self and 360° assessments.
  • Contribute to the quality of the class experience by being fully engaged and sharing experiences that will help the other people in the group in their leadership development.

Candidates who cannot commit to full participation because of existing obligations will be asked to wait to join a future cohort. Program alumni are asked to consider serving as advisors and mentors to future cohorts. 

Approximately 16 individuals will be selected for the third cohort to begin this fall. The application deadline has been extended to Monday, April 23, 2018.
