Programs & Events
This faculty learning community will provide in-depth, collegial explorations of the long-term leadership opportunities and needs on this campus. The FLC will be facilitated by Shanthi Srinivas (Presidential Fellow for Leadership Excellence and Institutional Development and Professor, Management & Human Resources and former AVP for Academic Planning, Policy, & Faculty Affairs).
The FLC will provide:
- Training for faculty interested in department leadership generally
- Strengthening the pipeline for department chairs, including mentoring for faculty interesting in becoming department chairs
- Leadership training with a college- and university-perspective for those interested in exploring leadership opportunities on campus
This FLC is for faculty from any discipline who are past the “new faculty” stage, who want to think deeply about the leadership needs on this campus, and who may be interested in entering the leadership pipeline on campus, based on a shared vision of the value of leadership on campus.

Start the semester with both high hopes AND actual plans for productivity and enjoyment!
This workshop from the National Center for Faculty Development & Diversity will lead faculty and other academic professionals through activities to identify personal and professional goals, create a strategic plan to accomplish them, and identify different ways to get the necessary community, support, and accountability. Start our adventure in semesters with a productive, balanced mindset, and a good plan to go along with!
Dr. Rachel McLaren, University of Iowa, will be our presenter. Participants will also receive 3 months free membership to the NCFDD; take advantage of all their resources! Open to all faculty and staff.
