The Faculty Leadership Initiative provides funding assistance for faculty to attend nationally recognized academic leadership development and external coaching programs, for both positional and non-positional leadership. Colleges/departments are required to provide matching funds; any unfunded expenses would be the responsibility of the faculty member. 

All tenure, clinical, research, and instructional track faculty with 50% or greater appointment are eligible to apply.

Applications accepted on an ongoing basis. Conversations should begin at the departmental/collegiate level. Request must show demonstrated support/cost share by dean, associate dean, or DEO. Email signed request form as a Word document to for review.
