FRN-LEADERSHIP-INITIATIVE

FRN LEADERSHIP INITIATIVE DESCRIPTION

The FRN Leadership Initiative will prepare emerging leaders to transform their own campuses by getting them to recognize opportunities to lead up, down, and sideways. This program will also build a leadership community across the FRN for continuing leaders who want to facilitate change and maximize collaboration within and between institutions. Ultimately, the goal of this program is to contribute to the transformation of the higher education ecosystem.

The grant for this initiative requires that participants teach or lead in the core humanities and arts disciplines or from departments strongly inflected by the humanities, such as communication, geography, or anthropology, whose work is primarily based on cultural/historical analysis.


For this inaugural series, we will accept up to 24 participants. The official launch of this virtual program is Fall 2021. The duration of the entire program will be over two semesters, Fall 2021 and Spring 2022.

The grant for this initiative requires that participants teach or lead in the core humanities and arts disciplines, or from departments that are strongly inflected by the humanities, such as communication, geography, or anthropology whose work is largely based in cultural/historical analysis.
