5/23/17 - Deadline for Faculty Leadership Program nominations coming up Friday

The Office of Research and Economic Development and the Office of the Provost and Executive Vice President will again be conducting an Academic Leadership Program for selected faculty at Mississippi State during the upcoming 2017-18 academic year.

The program consists of two-hour seminar sessions once per month from August to April with senior leaders covering a wide variety of topics.

This program has been very successful in the past, and many of its participants serve in key leadership positions at the university today. For this coming year, attendance will be limited to approximately 12 individuals who will be selected from those that apply.

Eligible faculty include associate professors who have held this rank for at least two years, or since Aug. 16, 2014, and those with the rank of professor. Eligible faculty 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 (3-5 pages maximum), and a one-page nomination letter from their center director, department head or dean. The nomination letter should provide details about why the faculty member should be selected. These materials should be emailed to Lynn Taylor at ltaylor@research.msstate.edu no later than Friday [May 26].

Selections will be made and announced prior to the start of the Fall 2017 academic semester. Please contact the Office of Research and Economic Development at (662) 325-3570 with any questions.
