As a reminder, all applications and nominations for the new UT Staff Leadership Development program are due by 5 p.m. Monday, Oct. 2.
Based on staff and faculty feedback received during the strategic planning process, the one-year program has been designed to develop emerging, high-potential leaders to help them grow in their existing positions at the University and later assume expanded leadership roles. Eligible staff members must have at least two years of employment with UT.
“Participants will be required to attend two to three hours of course work per month, except during July and August when they will have summer reading assignments,” said Wendy Davis, associate vice president and chief human resources officer. “They also will need to complete a capstone project by October 2018.”
Up to 20 participants will be selected to participate in the Staff Leadership Development program for 2017-2018. Interested staff members should complete an application form, while deans, vice presidents and other senior leaders may recommend an emerging leader to participate by submitting a nomination form. Both forms and additional information are available at utoledo.edu/depts/hr/leadership-development.
A multidisciplinary selection committee will review all forms, and cohorts selected to participate will be notified by Tuesday, Oct. 17.
