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 learn about available resources, university operations, different administrative responsibilities, and other details that would help faculty serve as knowledgeable representatives and leaders of Austin Peay. Accepted applicants meet once a week for an all-day, campus-led immersion program that facilitates this learning process.

Interested faculty members should submit the attached form with a copy of their curriculum vitae and a letter of support from their chair to: Center for Teaching and Learning, P.O. Box 4544, APSU, Clarksville, TN 37044. Feel free to contact Dr. Gray Kane for more information. The cohort of faculty will be selected for participation in the Faculty Leadership Program Spring 2015 by a committee composed of members of the Deans Council.

Deadline for application submission is Friday, August 15, 2014.
