University of Idaho Leadership Academy Call for Nominations and Applications
The University of Idaho Leadership Academy, a program open to University faculty and staff throughout the state, is being offered again in 2011-2012. The program’s mission is to provide ongoing opportunities that integrate the development of knowledge and skills in leadership with a university-based project, building our institutional leadership capacity for today and for the future.
The program, sponsored by the Office of the Provost and coordinated by the vice provost for academic affairs, focuses on national, institutional and personal leadership knowledge and development. Over the course of the year, participants complete an intensive program of study and exploration, which will include sessions on leadership, higher education, legal and ethical issues, internal and external relations, fiscal stewardship, personnel development, diversity, and other topics pertinent to leadership roles.
During their involvement in the Leadership Academy, participants also will have sessions with the president, provost, and University of Idaho vice presidents, and will be involved in a team project. In addition, they will have the opportunity to complete self-assessments regarding their leadership style and specific areas of strength.
Technology will be used to ensure that employees outside of the Moscow area are able to be actively involved. While all University faculty and staff are eligible to participate in the Leadership Academy, members of underrepresented groups and women are particularly encouraged to apply. Interested staff and faculty may either submit an application or be nominated by another university faculty member, staff member, or administrator. Visit www.uidaho.edu/leadership to apply online or submit a nomination.
