Staff members complete Provost's Leadership Academy

Staff members in the School of Medicine who were among the 2015 Cohort of the Provost's Leadership Academy: Nesela Kulenovic (Medicine), Blair Cade (Pharmacology and Toxicology), Jacqueline Mason (Surgery), and Shannon Martin (Neurological Surgery)

The Provost’s Staff Leadership Academy was designed to target mid-career professionals in supervisory or managerial roles who aspire to assume more responsible leadership positions within the University.

Participants engaged with professional presenters and fellow travelers in eight monthly workshops led by faculty from COB and CHED in areas such project management, team building, leadership and strategic planning. Participants also worked as a member of a team on a capstone project over the course of the year and met regularly with a mentor from another college, school or division. Capstone projects for the inaugural 2014 cohort yielded “shovel ready” recommendations for policy or program enhancements that have been conveyed to the Great Places to Work steering committee and Human Resources Advisory Committee for implementation. The 2015 class launched January 20 and concluded October 13, 2015.
