|Apply now for leadership seminar|
Each year, the president sponsors a set of professional development programs for faculty and staff. These programs are designed to assist those with an interest in university leadership to broaden their perspectives on issues and policies affecting decisions in higher education. The programs are open to both men and women, though special emphasis is placed on the importance of developing women for professional leadership roles within the University.
The Issues in Higher Education Leadership Seminar is designed for full-time faculty and staff interested in gaining a broader view of leadership in higher education. Six individuals will be selected to participate this year. The program runs from October 2008 to May 2009 and includes participation in a monthly seminar, attendance at one national higher education conference, a Deans Council, and one meeting of the North Dakota Board of Higher Education. Participants will also be expected to organize a campus forum on a higher education topic of their choosing. Each participant will receive a $250 stipend plus travel and conference expenses.
Applications are available from VictoriaBeard@mail.und.edu. The application deadline is Friday, Sept. 19.
