Building Pathways for Emerging Leaders at Illinois

The goal of the Building Pathways program is to increase the pool of potential academic leaders in our campus.

This year-long leadership development program is designed for faculty members at the associate and full professor rank who demonstrate leadership potential in their current role. The Office of the Provost will solicit nominations from colleges to identify distinguished faculty members who demonstrate leadership potential and who have expressed an interest in taking on leadership roles at the unit, college, or campus level. Faculty do not have to be in an administrative or titled position to participate but may have served as leaders in the department, college, or campus through committee assignments or other similar activities. The Office of the Provost will select approximately 12 faculty fellows from nominations to form a cohort each year.

The Building Pathways Fellows attend a series of monthly topical seminars held on campus. They also complete a series of projects and meet with mentors throughout the year.

For more information about the program, contact Associate Provost for Faculty Development Amy Santos.
