Faculty Leadership Program

Academic Affairs, Center for Teaching and Learning, and Center for Extended and Distance Education co-sponsor the Faculty Leadership Program, which recognizes the importance of the faculty’s leadership efforts at Austin Peay.

In exchange for a course release, the Faculty Leadership Program offers an opportunity for selected faculty to acquire a more comprehensive awareness of university operations, current or upcoming initiatives, trends, and relevant literature, as well as work on a team project and present its findings to the president and provost. Accepted applicants meet once a week for an all-day, campus-led immersion program that assists participants in developing a collaborative project to positively impact the institution and student success.

The Faculty Leadership Program fosters an exploratory team environment that requires participants to relegate all other campus responsibilities to non-program hours. It is part of the Campus Connection Initiative, which aims to develop a more interconnected, knowledgeable, and adaptable campus community capable of responding quickly and collaboratively to challenges and opportunities.

Deadline for applications for the Spring 2017 Faculty Leadership Program is August 19, 2016. For more information about the Faculty Leadership Program, please contact Dr. Gray Kane.
