The Faculty Leadership Academy (formerly known as the Leadership Development Program) enhances leadership at the tenured faculty and department chair levels by building on existing skills that support UC Davis in moving in new and even more productive directions. The academy combines didactic and case study strategies to connect broad concepts to specific behaviors in a six-session format. The style and pace allow for application of new concepts and skills on the job, followed by feedback during sessions exploring what worked and what didn’t—and why.
The academy provides an opportunity for tenured faculty to share experiences and perspectives; and to build professional relationships with peers. Previous attendees have commented that they valued and enjoyed meeting and engaging with other colleagues. In many cases, alumni of the program have continued to foster those relationships through alumni meetings after the program.
