Broward Leadership Program
Program Overview

Broward Leadership Program The program would be year round with six group workshop sessions, one every other month beginning in August 2010. Each workshop would run from 9 a.m. - 2 p.m. and include a panel discussion, a networking lunch session, and an introduction to a learning activity that would apply content presented in the workshop content. Each workshop would focus on one major division of support services - Administrative Services, Academic Affairs, Operations, Student Affairs, and University Advancement/Community Relations.

At each workshop, each candidate would be assigned a more senior campus leader with whom they would meet at least once in the month between sessions. The candidate would have the opportunity to meet with five different leaders by the end of the program. A minimum of eight and a maximum of ten candidates would be selected along with ten senior campus leaders would be recruited. The final workshop session would include a graduation ceremony and awarding of a certificate.


Purpose

The purpose of the FAU Leadership Program is to build future leadership for Florida Atlantic University. The overall goal of this program is to "grow our own":

  • identify current employees who have both the potential and the aspiration to become leaders in higher education
  • provide opportunities to develop their leadership skills, knowledge, and contacts

Target Audience

The initial target audience will be FAU Broward employees in or capable of positions at the "Coordinator" level or above. Assistant or Associate Directors are also appropriate. In the future, Program Assistants and Senior and Executive Secretaries would also be considered. While the goal is to "grow our own", the Committee accepts that individuals might find leadership roles elsewhere in the university, at other institutions of higher education, or even in organizations outside of higher education.++++The target audience will be:
