President Ramsey and the Commission on the Status of Women would like to sponsor an outstanding woman to attend a Higher Education Resource Services (HERS) Institute in 2015. Women faculty members or administrators, with a proven record of professional growth and responsibility, and who have a strong interest in campus administration and achieving institutional priorities and maximizing institutional resources are encouraged to review the institutes and apply for the one that best fits individual circumstances. The Bryn Mawr Summer Institute offers a two-week residential program. The HERS Institute at Wellesley College offers four three-day sessions across the 2015-2016 academic year. The HERS Institute at the University of Denver offers a two-week residential program. Visit the HERS website for more information.

HERS Summer Institutes have earned an outstanding reputation for expanding horizons, providing exposure to new and exciting ideas, fostering enduring mentoring relationships, and preparing women for institutional leadership roles. Recent UofL participants include Bridgette Pregliasco, Ph.D. in the College Education & Human Development; Marcia Hern, Ph.D., Dean of the School of Nursing; Deborah Davis, Ph.D., Pediatrics Child Development Unit; Cynthia Logsdon, Ph.D., School of Nursing, and Enid Trucios-Haynes, J.D. Brandeis School of Law.

The campus selection process will require that each applicant submit three items: a current CV, a letter describing the applicant’s reasons for application and how she will contribute to achieving institutional priorities and maximizing institutional resources and a letter of support from her dean, director, department head or supervisor. Send these items to Aleque M. Novesl.

Based on the HERS Institute's application deadline of December 1, 2014, the UofL application deadline is Friday, November 14, 2014. Applications will be reviewed and the outstanding applicant will be selected to apply to her chosen institute and provide required documents by the institute’s deadline.
