3/28/14 - Faculty leadership program seeks nominations

In the upcoming 2014-2015 academic year, the Office of Research and Economic Development and the Office of the Provost and Executive Vice President at Mississippi State will again be conducting an Academic Leadership Orientation Program for selected faculty.

This program has been very successful in the past, and many of its participants serve in key leadership positions today at the university.

For this coming year, attendance will be limited to approximately 12 individuals who will be selected from those that apply. Any faculty member is eligible to attend, 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 and a one-page nomination letter from their center director, department head or dean. These materials should be emailed to Lynn Taylor at ltaylor@research.msstate.edu by no later than May 30. Selections will be made and announced prior to the start of the Fall 2014 academic semester.

The format of the leadership program consists of two-hour seminar sessions once per month from September to April. A wide variety of topics will be covered by senior leaders at Mississippi State. Questions concerning this program should be addressed to the Office of Research and Economic Development at 662-325-3570.
