LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITIES
Our Office is willing to fund 50% of the cost of participation of a limited number of faculty members in these programs. We invite you to consider the following:
HERS (Higher Education Resource Services): The HERS program is a residential program in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania which takes place each summer (this year, from July 10 – 22, 2017). HERS is open to women only, and focuses on women in faculty, staff, and administrative roles in higher education to further develop their leadership ability and management skills. The application deadline is February 15, 2016, and applications are being accepted now. The fee for tuition and meals is $7499 per faculty member. (In the past, local participants have sometimes commuted to the program; there is also a housing option.)
Aspen Institute’s Wye Faculty Seminar: The 2017 Wye Faculty Seminar on Citizenship in the American and Global Polity, modeled in the tradition of The Aspen Institute Executive Seminar, takes place from July 16-21, 2017 on their Wye River Campus on the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland. The Seminar assists professors in relating their teaching to broad issues of citizenship in the American polity and beyond, by providing a forum to exchange ideas with colleagues from other colleges and other disciplines while probing ideas and values that underlie their teaching and the lives they lead as liberally educated persons. The application deadline is April 15, 2017. The total fee including tuition, meals, and housing is $2,975 for each Fellow.
Salzburg Global Seminar: Salzburg Global Seminar has always invested in rising leaders as an essential part of long-term change management. Online and through events around the world, Salzburg Global nurtures ongoing relationships and engagement, and hosts vibrant cross-sector discussions to stimulate the exchange of new ideas and innovative practices. The Fellowship department is designed to serve Salzburg Global Fellows by helping them to reach broader audiences when communicating organizational and individual success stories and by connecting them with valuable new contacts in their region or thematic field, thereby creating long term collaborative hubs as drivers for global change.

ELAM (Executive Leadership in Academic Medicine): The ELAM program offers an intensive one-year fellowship of leadership training with extensive coaching, networking and mentoring opportunities aimed at expanding the national pool of qualified women candidates for leadership in academic medicine, dentistry and public health. The ELAM program has been specially developed for senior women faculty at the associate or full professor level who demonstrate the greatest potential for assuming executive leadership positions at academic health centers within the next five years. ELAM's program fee is $13,600, which covers 19 days in session, distance learning activities throughout the fellowship year, course materials, faculty/facilitators, conference site expenses, continuing education fees, special events and most meals for the fellows. Applications are due on January 15, 2017. Nominations and recommendations are due January 29, 2017.
Please send the names and CVs of any faculty members you wish to nominate for this fee-splitting arrangement by the respective application deadlines to firstname.lastname@example.org. Nominations must come with a letter of support or other communication of endorsement from the dean.
