Chancellor Elrod is launching a new Chancellor’s Leadership Program to help employees across campus develop as leaders, build overall campus leadership capacity, and contribute solutions or improvements to campus programs, operations or impact. It will bring a selected cohort of faculty and staff together to learn about principles and practices of leadership, to create leader development plans for their own professional advancement, and to contribute their leadership to campus programs and initiatives. The program will be centered on the reading and discussion of a book, The Practice of Adaptive Leadership: Tools and Tactics for Changing Your Organization and the World (Heifetz, Grashow, and Linsky, 2009). Participants will join together in reading and discussing this book and using what they learn to create a Leader Development Plan. This is the initial year of what the Chancellor hopes will be a continuing program. Applications are due November 30, 2020. Please note that applications require a letter from supervisors (see application below for more details).
