Leadership Development for Faculty, Staff Announced

The Board of Regents has announced a new Executive Leadership Institute (ELI) program for high-potential faculty and staff in senior management positions.

The program will provide 100 contact hours over 7 months, focused on leadership development. Program segments include: identifying and developing leadership strengths; self-assessment; 360-degree feedback; mentoring; job shadowing; and exposure to peers and leaders across the system.

The program is open to faculty and staff members at or above the level of executive director (or equivalent). Applications are available online and are due no later than 5 p.m., Sept. 8. Applications will be reviewed by a selection committee, and one faculty and one staff member will be selected for participation in the process.

With the exception of travel costs, the Board of Regents will underwrite all program expenses. This is a good opportunity to provide high-level training at low expense for exceptional faculty and staff who can commit the time to the program.
