Faculty Leadership Program nominations wanted

May 25, 2012

The MSU Office of Research and Economic Development will again be conducting an academic leadership program for selected faculty.

The 2012-13 program will begin in September, and nominations are being accepted until Thursday [May 31].

This program has been very successful in the past, and many of its participants serve in key leadership positions today at Mississippi State. The format of the leadership program consists of two-hour seminar sessions once per month from September to May. A wide variety of topics are covered by senior MSU leaders.

Attendance is limited to approximately 12 individuals selected from those that apply. Any faculty member is eligible, but each must be nominated by his or her center director, department head or dean.

To apply, interested faculty should send a one-page summary addressing future career plans, a current CV and a one-page nomination letter from the appropriate center director, department head or dean.

These items should be sent to Cristi Stevens at cstevens@research.msstate.edu no later than Thursday [May 31]. Selections will be made and announced prior to the start of the fall semester.

Questions concerning this program should be addressed to Ray Vaughn, associate vice president for research, at 662-325-3570 or vaughn@research.msstate.edu.
