Friday deadline for faculty leadership nominations


May 30, 2013

For the 2013-2014 academic year, the Office of Research and Economic Development and the Office of the Provost and Executive Vice President will again be conducting an academic leadership orientation program for selected faculty at Mississippi State University.

This program has been very successful in the past, and many of its participants serve in key leadership positions on campus today. For the upcoming year, attendance will be limited to approximately 12 individuals who will be chosen from those who apply.

Any faculty member is eligible to attend, but must be nominated by their center director, department head or dean.

To apply, interested faculty should send a one-page summary addressing their future career plans, a current CV, and a one-page nomination letter from their center director, department head or dean. These materials should be sent to Jessica Northcutt at jnorthcutt@research.msstate.edu by no later than Friday, May 31, 2013.

Selections will be made and announced prior to the start of the Fall 2013 semester.

The format of the leadership program consists of two-hour seminar sessions once per month from September to May. A wide variety of topics will be covered by senior leaders at MSU.

Questions about the program should be addressed to ORED at 662-325-3570.
