Provost's Faculty Leadership Fellows

The Office of the Provost, in coordination with CETL - Faculty Success, has launched the Provost’s Faculty Leadership Fellows, PFLF, program for AY 2020 – 2021.

This program is an unpaid, professional, and personal development opportunity for full-time, tenure-track faculty interested in moving into formal or higher-level leadership roles at Kennesaw State University. Deans were asked to nominate two emerging leaders with high leadership potential per college to participate in the nine-month program.

Program Goals

This Provost’s Faculty Leadership Fellows program will:

  1. develop leadership capacity at KSU.
  2. demonstrate KSU’s commitment to develop faculty into future leaders, including faculty from underrepresented populations.
  3. provide personalized leadership training, mentoring, and coaching to a nine-month cohort of KSU faculty with high leadership potential.
  4. facilitate the development of research-based practices, including positive, value-based, inclusive, and reciprocal leadership.

Fellow Outcomes

 Fellows will:

  1. develop leadership competencies and confidence.
  2. identify personal leadership strengths and areas for development.
  3. create a leadership development plan.
  4. build a mutually supportive community of leaders within the cohort and with existing leaders.
