Women’s Leadership Faculty Fellows Program

Women’s Leadership Faculty Fellows Program

Georgia College established the Women’s Leadership Faculty Fellows Program in 2019 to provide a selected group of current faculty and faculty serving in administrative positions with dedicated time to develop and hone leadership skills and gain a deeper understanding of the challenges and opportunities confronting higher education. The program will specifically focus on issues women face in academic administration.

This year’s program begins in November 2022 and runs through May 2023. Fellows will attend monthly virtual and/or face-to-face meetings where they will learn from senior administrators on campus as well as visiting speakers from academia, business, and other fields. The program also features a concluding retreat for more in-depth learning.

Participants will be GC faculty who have been awarded tenure and hold the rank of associate or full professor who represent all colleges and the library and/or academic administrators with faculty status. A selection committee will review the submissions and make recommendations to the Provost.

Applicants should submit materials to Rhonda Griffin, Administrative Assistant for the Office of the Provost (rhonda.griffin@gcsu.edu) by Friday, September 30, 2022. The application materials should include:

(a) A letter, not to exceed two pages, presenting evidence of interest in academic leadership, experience in academic governance or administration to date, and what the nominee hopes to accomplish with the support of the program;

(b) Two letters of recommendation; one of which needs to be from an immediate supervisor. Each recommendation letter is limited to one page in length;

(c) A current C.V. or résumé.

The Women’s Leadership Faculty Fellows Program is administered by the Office of the Provost.  More information about the program can be found at the website: https://www.gcsu.edu/provost/womens-leadership-faculty-fellows-program
