2013 Leadership program applications accepted

The Chancellor’s Office is dedicated to developing the leadership skills of its faculty and staff. To that end, funding is being provided for one faculty or staff member to participate in the Bridges Leadership Program and one to participate in the Leadership Greensboro program. Funds will cover registration fees and program materials. These programs offer invaluable opportunities for participants to put their skills to work in our community and state.

The UNCG Leadership Programs Committee will review applications and will select candidates for funding. We encourage you to help us select outstanding candidates. Attached is a summary of the Bridges Leadership Program and the Leadership Greensboro program. Also, here are links to each of the programs:

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.

Anyone who is interested in applying or learning more about specific programs can contact Jay Laramore, Office of the Chancellor, 4-4226 or jhlaramo@uncg.edu. Materials, except for letters of recommendation, should be electronically submitted by April 1, 2013. Letters of recommendation should also be submitted by April 1, 2013; however, they should be submitted in hard copy and delivered to the Leadership Programs Committee, Office of the Chancellor, 303 Mossman Building.
