Deadline for faculty leadership program nominations

The Office of Research and Economic Development will again be conducting an academic leadership program for selected faculty at Mississippi State University.

The 2012-13 program will begin in September, and nominations are being accepted until Thursday, May 31.

This program has been very successful in the past, and many of its participants serve in key leadership positions today at Mississippi State. The format of the leadership program consists of two-hour seminar sessions once per month from September to May. A wide variety of topics will be covered by senior leaders at MSU.

Attendance is limited to approximately 12 individuals, who will be selected from those that apply. Any faculty member is eligible to attend, but each must be nominated by their center director, department head or dean.

To apply, interested faculty should send a one-page summary addressing future career plans, a current CV and a one-page nomination letter from the appropriate center director, department head or dean.

These items should be sent to Cristi Stevens at no later than Thursday, May 31.

Selections will be made and announced prior to the start of the fall semester.

Questions concerning this program should be addressed to Ray Vaughn, associate vice president for research, at 662-325-3570 or
