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.
Seminar meetings will likely be held Friday afternoons, with each session running approximately 1.5 to 2 hours. If meetings are held in person, hospitality will be provided. Participants will receive a $400 stipend. Questions about the program can be directed to any of the program’s directors or advisors.
