Faculty Development and Diversity

HERS Institutes for Women in Higher Education Leadership

Beginning in 2017, Academic Affairs will sponsor at least one colleague to participate in one of the nation’s premier leadership development opportunities for women in higher education. Open to tenured, tenure-track, and academic administrators.

The HERS Institute is one of the most compelling leadership development opportunities in higher education. Participants find the Institute to be a safe environment to share confidential matters. The active learning style utilized by HERS faculty also leads to meaningful collaboration. The end of the HERS Institute is the beginning of something new—new methods for transforming higher education and a new professional network that possesses a deep understanding of all facets of higher education.

Internal applications for institutional sponsorship are due Jan 22.

Application form includes a brief narrative and should be submitted to Academic Affairs. The selected candidate will then have to apply directly to a HERS Institute.

Questions? Contact: Cheryl Moore-Thomas, associate vice president for faculty affairs and diversity.
