Emerging Leaders Academy seeks nominations

The Office of the Senior Vice President and Provost is looking for nominations for the 2015-2016 Emerging Leaders Academy (ELA).

ELA is an academic-year initiative to develop faculty and professional and scientific staff who either currently serve in leadership roles at Iowa State or aspire to hold leadership positions. Participants attend monthly leadership 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.

Eligibility criteria

To participate, faculty must be tenured, a senior lecturer or senior clinical faculty. Eligible P&S staff must 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 2015-16 group will begin meeting in late August. Nominations should be submitted online by March 25; selection of participants will be completed by April 15.

Additional information about the program, including meeting dates next year and the electronic nomination process, is online. Questions may be directed to associate provost for faculty Dawn Bratsch-Prince, 294-6410.
