[Now Closed] Call for Applications: Tyson Academic Leadership Program, 2024-2025

July 12, 2023 | Kristen Chavez

The Institute for the Arts and Humanities is now accepting applications for the 2024-2025 Tyson Academic Leadership Program, due Oct. 26, 2023.

The ALP helps prepare and support current and emerging academic leaders at UNC-Chapel Hill. Eight Fellows selected annually from units throughout the University engage in a series of activities to help them develop leadership skills, clarify their career commitments, build a leadership network within the campus, and extend their contacts to other leaders beyond the University. Because the ALP requires a significant time commitment, a flexible use stipend of $5,000 is provided to each participant.

What are the requirements of the fellowship?

  • Fall orientation dinner. This event is in the fall prior to the fellowship year.
  • A week of leadership training with the Center for Creative Leadership in Greensboro. This training should be completed during the summer or fall prior to the program.
  • Two-day Racial Equity Institute Phase 1 training. This training should be completed during the summer or fall prior to the program.
  • Day long kickoff event, typically held on the Friday after New Year’s Day.
  • Weekly lunch-time seminars (typically held from 11:00 AM – 2:30 PM on Thursdays in the spring) in Hyde Hall starting the week after the kickoff event.
  • One overnight retreat. The overnight retreat is typically the last Friday-Saturday of January of the fellowship semester.
  • One all-day retreat. The all-day retreat is off-campus and typically on a reading day in early May of the fellowship semester.
  • Fall forum launch dinner. This event is in the fall following the fellowship semester.

Who may apply?

The Tyson Academic Leadership Program is open to tenure-track and fixed-term faculty members. Tenure-track faculty must be tenured and fixed-term faculty must have at least seven years of service at UNC-Chapel Hill in a primarily instructional role, which is roughly the time to tenure.

What are the steps to apply?

Before completing the application, please review the eligibility and program requirements.

When are applications due?

Applications are due on Thursday, Oct. 26, 2023.

When will I be notified of a decision?

How can I get more information about the Academic Leadership Program?

Please contact IAH Program Administrator Silas Webb ( or ALP Program Director Viji Sathy ( with any questions or concerns that you have about the program.
