Equity and Leadership Development Program: Call for Applications and Nominations

Monday, May 10, 2021

The LCA Equity and Leadership Development Program (ELDP) is a faculty-facilitated, 5-session seminar for tenured faculty in LCA, which will run throughout Fall 2021, and which is sponsored by the College of Liberal & Creative Arts. It is designed to accomplish the following:

  • Develop more equitable representation of faculty of color and equity-minded faculty in administrative leadership positions;
  • Assist participants in preparation for and understanding of administrative leadership;
  • Provide participants opportunities to explore how, when, and where equity shapes university administration;
  • Facilitate participants’ deeper understandings of the university’s administrative operations.

Each seminar meeting combines presentations from current administrative leaders on career pathways and university operations followed by faculty-only learning community discussions.

Program Directors: Professors Celine Parreñas Shimizu, Kasturi Ray, and Julietta Hua
Consultants: Professors Kitty Millet and Gitanjali G Shahani
Advisors: AVP Carleen Mandolfo and Dean Andrew Harris

Interested faculty may apply by May 10, 2021.
