Faculty Leadership Institute

The Center for Faculty Development is pleased to announce the inaugural Faculty Leadership Institute (FLI) beginning January 2019.

The FLI aims to build an interdisciplinary community that cares about leading and professional development. We invite faculty applicants who are already in leadership positions within the university (programs, schools, committees) or in professional organizations, as well as faculty who are considering taking on leadership positions. Both junior and senior faculty are welcome to apply.

FLI Faculty Fellows will develop leadership skills applicable to all levels at the university and within the professional landscape. The FLI will include training and lectures from on and off-campus leaders, and workshops and supplementary readings on the following topics:

  • leadership theory
  • strengths analysis
  • conflict management
  • communication skills
  • collaborative leadership
  • strategic leadership
  • advocacy
  • personal and professional goal-setting
  • and more

FLI faculty fellows will gain skills, knowledge, and resources that are transferable to varied dimensions of their faculty careers, from research productivity to involvement in their professional discipline to formal leadership opportunities on campus.

The FLI is scheduled for Spring 2019, Summer 2019, and Fall 2019.  This schedule should decrease the time burden during any given term. The institute will begin with an all-day retreat on January 18, 2019. The spring and fall semesters will include bi-monthly meetings, and the summer will include online discussion boards and readings. FLI Faculty Fellows are required to participate in the opening retreat and in all three terms.
