Faculty Leadership Program
Overview of the Faculty Leadership Program
The Faculty Leadership Program recognizes the importance of the faculty's leadership efforts at Austin Peay. The Faculty Leadership Program fosters the development of a more interconnected, knowledgeable, and adaptable campus community capable of responding quickly and collaboratively to challenges and opportunities.
The Faculty Leadership Program offers an opportunity for selected faculty to acquire a more comprehensive awareness of university operations, current or upcoming initiatives, trends, and relevant literature, as well as work on a team project and present its findings to the president and provost. The program fosters an exploratory team environment that requires participants to relegate all other campus responsibilities to non-program hours.
Accepted applicants meet half-days each week for both semesters (Fall and Spring) as part of a campus-led immersion program that assists participants in developing a collaborative project to positively impact the institution and student success, in addition to participating in mentoring conducted by university leaders.
