Staff Leadership Academy
Imagine what it would feel like to step into work every day, no matter your role, as an empowered leader whose contributions are recognized and celebrated. What if it were possible to cultivate an organizational culture where you feel engaged and empowered as a staff member? What would it feel like to work in an organization where you feel deeply valued and your development is highly prioritized?
With the creation of the College of Liberal Arts’ Staff Leadership Academy, our college takes another step toward building that workplace. Beginning Fall 2021, the College of Liberal Arts will launch its inaugural Staff Leadership Academy. This 9-month program will run each academic year from September through May.
