Eight faculty members across campus were selected to participate in the Tyson Academic Leadership Program. The program is designed to aid emerging leaders through a series of activities to develop leadership skills, clarify career commitments and build their leadership network.

During their fellowship year, participants attend leadership training with the Center for Creative Leadership in Greensboro, interacting with senior executives across the public and private sectors. In the spring, fellows attend weekly seminars to address critical issues facing the University, and have opportunities to meet with senior leaders inside and outside the University throughout their fellowship year. With the significant time commitment, fellows receive a flexible use stipend of $5,000.

The ALP was introduced in 2001, and is one of the flagship programs of the Institute. Last year, 66 ALP alumni held leadership roles, helping to make our campus and the academic community stronger.
