Leadership Programs – Nominations Sought

As in past years, the Leadership Programs Committee will nominate UNCG faculty and staff to participate in programs to develop their leadership skills. These programs offer invaluable opportunities for participants to put their skills to work in our community and state.

Chancellor Linda P. Brady has provided for one or two UNCG faculty or staff members to participate in both the Bridges Leadership Program and the Leadership Greensboro program. Funds will cover registration fees and program materials.

The Leadership Programs Committee encourages faculty and staff to help them select outstanding candidates to participate in this year’s leadership training. Below is a summary of each program. Anyone who is interested in learning more about specific programs may contact Sharlene O’Neil, Office of the Chancellor, 4-5266 or sroneil@uncg.edu.

Interested candidates are asked to submit the following materials:

  • current curriculum vitae
  • description of current responsibilities
  • professional and personal reasons for applying
  • list of other leadership or management education programs attended
  • two confidential letters of recommendation placed in sealed envelopes (one must be from within the candidate’s department). When nominees are selected copies of their recommendations will be sent to the leadership programs.

Materials should be submitted no later than March 22 to the Leadership Programs Committee, Office of the Chancellor, 303 Mossman Building.
