Re: Leadership Development Program for Scholars of Color

Nationally, scholars of color hold fewer leadership positions in academia compared to their counterparts; these patterns require new and intentional efforts to provide leadership development opportunities, support, and networking that will translate into increased representation and inclusion of faculty of color in formal leadership roles within the academy.

In partnership with the Center for Creative Leadership (CCL), UNCG is offering a custom leadership program that will build the skills and connections for scholars of color that will support their success in future leadership positions throughout their careers. CCL is an internationally renowned expert in leadership training, and they are excited to bring this custom program to our campus for the second year in a row.

This program is supported by the Office of the Chancellor and Office of the Provost. It is a high-level executive leadership institute experience that is being offered at no cost to participants.

This year’s program is being offered in-person, during winter intersession:

  • Thursday, January 6, 2022, 8:30 am to 6:00 pm (CCL headquarters in Greensboro)
  • Friday, January 7, 2022, 8:30 am to 6:00 pm (CCL headquarters in Greensboro)
  • (a third date for a half-day virtual program will be determined by the facilitator)

To participate, CCL requires proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test; and you must be available to attend all three sessions.

Through this two-day, intensive session, combined with a virtual follow-up session, executive coaching, and personalized assessment, this program will give you the time to consider your own leadership strengths and areas of need, and to network with other talented faculty at UNCG.

We are inviting mid-career faculty, tenured and fixed-term, to apply. This program is being offered at no charge to participants.

To nominate a faculty member or to self-nominate, please complete this short application form by October 25 at 5:00 pm.

If you have questions, please contact Andrea Hunter, Chancellor’s Campus Climate Fellow (aghunter@uncg.edu) and Waiyi Tse, Chief of Staff (waiyi.tse@uncg.edu).
