This fall, the Office of the Provost’s faculty development workshops have focused on academic and faculty leadership.
Learn about the range of academic and faculty leadership roles across the University and why you might be interested in and well suited to a leadership position.
The next installment, on Nov. 9, will focus on the range of academic and faculty leadership roles across the University and why you might be interested in and well suited to a leadership position.
Panelists will include faculty members who have held a range of leadership roles, from department to school, regional campus to University-level administration and within the University Senate. They will discuss what those roles entail, what skills they call upon, and what they have found rewarding and challenging in their various roles.
The panelists are:
Shelome Gooden, assistant vice chancellor for research in the humanities, arts, social sciences and related fields and professor of linguistics, Dietrich School of Arts & Sciences
Janet L. Grady, vice president for academic affairs and professor and division chair, nursing & health science, Pitt–Johnstown
Robin Kear, University Senate president and liaison librarian, University Library System
Adam K. Leibovich, associate dean for research and faculty development and professor of physics & astronomy, Dietrich School of Arts & Sciences
