The Office for Academic Affairs and the Office of Research and Economic Development is pleased to announce a call for applications to the UAH LEAD Program. LEAD stands for Leadership Enhancement and Administrative Development.

The LEAD Program is intended for leaders (both academic and research) who aspire to increase their leadership skills and to assume or advance leadership positions at UAH in formal and informal roles. The purpose of the program is to:

  • develop the knowledge needed to be a successful academic leader
  • provide the opportunity to engage with the senior leadership team at UAH
  • develop a network of peers across campus to assist in leading UAH

Each year, the program will be composed of approximately ten members, selected on a competitive basis, and the Faculty Senate President-Elect. The group will meet monthly with leaders at UAH for approximately two hours to discuss leadership. The program will begin in September and end in May. Each meeting will typically have one or two topical presentations led by a panel or selected speakers followed by a discussion. The program will be sponsored jointly by the Office for Academic Affairs and the Office for Research and Economic Development. Interested candidates should submit the attached application form with a 1-page nomination letter from their Department Chair/Dean/Research Center Director, a 1-page statement outlining their reason for applying and their future leadership aspirations, and a 2-page biography in the format indicated on the form to: Dr. Robert Lindquist, Associate VP for Research, VBRH M-17, UAH, Huntsville, AL. The deadline for application submission is April 27, 2017. The cohort will be selected for participation in the UAH LEAD Program by a selection committee formed in a collaboration of the Office for Academic Affairs and the Office of Research.
