The program will kick off with a virtual event Feb. 27, followed by three on-site sessions at Clemson University (March 20-22), University of Louisville (June 12-14) and North Carolina State University (Nov. 18-20).
The sessions will focus on leadership topics and promote leadership growth, awareness and effectiveness.
Participating faculty members from all member institutions have received foundational leadership training and served at least one year in a relevant leadership role.
