Leadership Development Programs

Emerging Leaders Program

The Emerging Leaders Program is designed for associate and full professors who have attained tenure. Over the course of nine months, participants take part in several activities including a fall weekend workshop, monthly workshops, small-group work, and a 360-degree assessment. The program is a collaboration among the Office of the Provost, the Institute for Leadership and Social Impact, and the Office of the Vice Provost for Faculty.

Faculty Executive Leadership Academy

The Faculty Executive Leadership Academy (FELA) is designed to identify, foster, and develop senior faculty members for leadership. This program will build on individuals’ previous leadership development experiences by providing first access to senior leadership and their decisions; offering close, and accessible, mentoring; and participating in the formulation of solutions and policies related to real problems and on-going issues. Participants in the first cohort are Susan Burns (Civil and Environmental Engineering), Alex Orso (Computer Science), Pinar Keskinocak (ISyE), and Hang Lu (Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering).

ACC Academic Leaders Network

The ACC Academic Leaders Network (ACC ALN) is designed to facilitate cross-institutional networking and collaboration among academic leaders while building leadership capacity for the participating institutions. The target audience is faculty who have received foundational leadership training and who have at least 1-2 years of experience in their current leadership role, such as department chairs/heads, assistant/associate deans, and assistant/associate provosts (or similar titles as they may vary across institutions). Participants must be able to attend all three on-site sessions over the course of the calendar year, each hosted at a different participating university campus. Participants for 2023 are Jason Freeman (Music), Alex Orso (Computer Science), Aaron Levine (Public Policy), Karen Glover (Library), and Laura Cadonati (Physics).
