Viret Family Faculty Leadership Fellows

The Viret Family Faculty Leadership Fellows Program provides faculty members considering a career in academic leadership with a variety of leadership development opportunities centered around a consequential project of importance to the University.

Designed for those aspiring to leadership positions as chairs, deans, provosts or other executive administrative careers, the Leadership Fellows program is a selective program that engages its participants in a process that is designed to develop leadership talent and skill through hands on experience.

A project oriented experience, the Viret Family Faculty Leadership Fellows program focuses on initiatives key to academic administration and executive leadership within the university setting. The Fellows’ projects align with and will advance Momentum, the University’s strategic plan.

The Viret Family Faculty Leadership Fellows program is built around an intensive semester long experience. The Fellows will participate in meetings and one on one discussions with a leadership mentor. They will also have access to professional development seminars and workshops and support to attend national conferences in their area of interest.
