Applications sought for Faculty Leadership Program
The Office of Research and Economic and Development and the Office of the Provost and Executive Vice President will lead Mississippi State's Faculty Leadership Program in the upcoming 2016-2017 academic year.
This academic leadership orientation program for selected faculty has been very successful in the past, and many of its participants serve in key university leadership positions today.
For this coming year, attendance will be limited to approximately 12 individuals who will be selected from those that apply. Eligible faculty include those with the ranks of associate professor, who have held this rank for at least two years (since Aug. 16, 2014), and professor, but must be nominated by their center director, department head or dean.
To apply, interested faculty should send a one-page summary addressing their future career plans, a current abbreviated CV (3-5 pages maximum) and a one-page nomination letter from their center director, department head or dean. The nomination letter should provide detailed insight as to why this faculty member should be selected.
Application materials should be emailed to Lynn Taylor at email@example.com no later than May 27. Selections will be made and announced prior to the start of the fall semester.
The format of the leadership program consists of two-hour seminar sessions once per month from August to April. A wide variety of topics will be covered by senior leaders at MSU. Questions concerning this program should be addressed to ORED at 662-325-3570.
