Faculty members invited to apply for CIC leadership program
Purdue faculty members are invited to apply for the Committee on Institutional Cooperation's Academic Leadership Program. The deadline to apply is March 14.
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 and a letter of support from one's department head endorsed by the dean.
Applicants can apply by submitting nomination materials to Annie Jarrard in the Office of the Provost at email@example.com.
This year, Purdue will competitively select up to five faculty members to participate in the program, and the faculty members will attend three seminars for two and a half days on the various participating campuses. Purdue's Fellows meet at least monthly with administrators on their own campus to learn about various administrative functions.
The program will be in its 28th 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 2015-16 Fellows for additional input regarding the CIC-ALP program. A panel of Purdue's former CIC-ALP Fellows will recommend this year's fellows to the Office of the Provost, which will select the fellows. The office will announce its selections in mid-April.
A roster of all of Purdue’s current and former CIC-ALP Fellows and more information about the program can be found on the Office of the Provost website at www.purdue.edu/provost/faculty/cic.html.
