Pathways to Leadership Program

Pathways to Leadership Program

The Faculty of Arts and Science Pathways to Leadership Program is a unique new three-year pilot project launched in 2021-22. It consists of three special advisor appointments, one per year of the three years of the pilot and each appointment one year in duration.

Each appointment supports a faculty member in Arts and Science by providing them with an opportunity to realize a project, program, or initiative that advances the teaching and research mission of students, faculty members and staff across FAS.

Specifically, the positions provide mentorship in administration and leadership for the candidates and an avenue through which programs and people across FAS can benefit from the innovative thinking of emerging leaders in the Faculty’s ranks.

Faculty members appointed to these positions are supported by:

  • a one-term course release from teaching
  • working space, budget, and administrative support 
  • mentorship by the Associate Deans in whose portfolios the project falls
