Chancellor’s Leadership Academy Inaugural Class Announced

Chancellor Donde Plowman has announced the inaugural class of the Chancellor’s Leadership Academy, a new eight-month professional development program aimed at elevating leaders across the campus.

The class includes 32 department heads, directors, deans, associate vice chancellors, and other faculty and staff from colleges and units across the university. The group will meet monthly with Plowman and other top university leaders to expand their professional and personal leadership skills.

“I am proud of this program and the opportunity we are creating for participants to explore what effective and meaningful leadership can and should look like on a university campus and beyond,” Plowman said. “I’m looking forward to these conversations each month, to seeing these leaders learn and grow, and to learning from them as well.”

The program will focus on building upon individuals’ strengths, solving problems through critical thinking and collaboration, and empowering participants to provide strategic leadership to the campus. Throughout the course, participants are encouraged to build meaningful relationships with their colleagues to foster community and accountability.

The academy had its first meeting September 14.
