The program is open to full-time, regular academic and administrative faculty members at the university. At the time of application, individuals must have completed at least five years of full-time work as a faculty member.
The ability of a department or unit to maintain operations with the loss of a portion of an applicant’s time will be considered. Thus, individuals must consult with and receive approval from their supervisor prior to application. For academic faculty members who have teaching responsibilities, the letter of support from their supervisor must indicate approval for a one-course reassignment during the academic year of participation, either during the fall or spring semester.
Preference will be given to applicants whose curriculum vitae or resume and statement of interest reflects strong interest in and potential for higher-level university leadership. Individuals who have already participated in other university leadership training programs are encouraged to apply.
