The Leadership Development Academy consists of two components: (1) a curriculum of approximately three to five seminars per semester related directly to prominent higher education issues and UNLV-specific challenges and (2) an administrative placement that involves direct contact with a senior administrator. It is expected that the academy fellow works on a specific project as part of that placement. Due to the intensive nature of the program, the number of academy fellows is generally limited to four to six per year. Academic and administrative faculty have at least one senior administrative placement. Academic faculty fellows are granted a one-course workload reassignment for each regular semester of the year-long academy. Administrative faculty fellows, due to their more restrictive schedules, have their placement scheduled on an individual basis and in accordance with a negotiated agreement between the provost’s office, the fellow, and the fellow’s supervisor. In all cases, the number and nature of placements and projects are tailored to individual fellows to the extent practicable. The Academy is a two-year experience (beginning in 2015), with much of the second year focused on completion of the fellow’s project.
