Emerging Leaders Academy seeks nominations

The Office of the Senior Vice President and Provost is looking for nominations for the 2013-14 Emerging Leaders Academy (ELA).

ELA is an academic year initiative to develop faculty and professional and scientific staff currently serving in leadership roles at Iowa State, or who aspire to hold leadership positions. Participants attend monthly sessions on leadership theory and practice, current issues in higher education, and university-related challenges and opportunities.

John Schuh, Distinguished Professor emeritus of educational leadership and policy studies, will lead the program. Schuh led an earlier version of the program called Shared Leadership for Institutional Change.

Eligibility criteria

To participate, faculty must be tenured or in a position of senior lecturer or senior clinical faculty. Eligible P&S staff should have an appointment at P35 or above. All applicants should be aspiring or recently appointed leaders of a department, college, division, unit, center or institute.

The group will begin meeting in August. Nominations should be submitted online by Friday, March 15. Additional information on the program and nomination process can be found on the provost's website.
