Leadership Development

Leadership development opportunities provided by the Office of Faculty Affairs include workshops and cohort program designed to prepare faculty for leadership roles across their career. Programs align with the knowledge and practices articulated in the University System of Georgia Leadership Competencies Model, which foregrounds ethics and integrity. Further, C. Clinton Sidle's leadership development model informs our emphasis on four leadership competencies: personal mastery, interpersonal communication, team management, and systems thinking. As Walter H. Gmelch and Jeffrey L. Buller explain in their Building Academic Leadership Capacity (2015), “Academic leadership is the act of empowering members of the faculty and staff by working with them collegially to achieve common goals, build a community of scholars, and sustain a high level of morale.” Our programs offer a range of opportunities for leaders to learn with one another, build community, stretch their knowledge and skills, and advance their careers.
