Purdue faculty members are invited to apply for the Committee on Institutional Cooperation's Academic Leadership Program. The deadline to apply is March 18.
The committee is an academic consortium of Big Ten universities and the University of Chicago. The leadership program is designed to develop the leadership and managerial skills of faculty who have demonstrated exceptional ability and administrative promise.
Nominees for the upcoming program must electronically submit a complete curriculum vitae, an applicant letter of interest, a letter of support from a department head endorsed by the dean, and a completed program application.
Applicants can apply online and upload requested materials from the Office of the Provost website at http://dagon.admin.purdue.edu/cic.
Each year, Purdue competitively selects up to six faculty members to participate in the program, which meets three times for two and a half days on the various participating campuses. Purdue's Fellows meet monthly with administrators on their own campus to learn about various administrative functions.
The program will be in its 24th year next fall and is specifically oriented to the challenges of academic administration of major research universities and to the preparation of faculty members to meet those challenges.
Individuals interested in applying should feel free to contact the 2012-13 Fellows for additional input regarding the CIC-ALP program.
