Applications Open for 2016-17 Next Gen 2.0
In keeping with the IUPUI Strategic Plan and goals to retain and develop a diverse pool of talent to lead the institution into the future, a new leadership development initiative was announced in 2015 by Nasser Paydar, then executive vice chancellor and chief academic officer at IUPUI and now IUPUI Chancellor. Iinterim executive vice chancellor Kathy Johnson has announced plans for a second cohort for 2016-17 academic year.
The program called "IUPUI Next Generation 2.0" prepares women and underrepresented minority faculty and staff for positions of leadership and opportunities for advancement at IUPUI and in higher education. It directly addresses campus Strategic Plan goals to "develop our faculty and staff" and to "promote an inclusive campus climate."
“We are extremely pleased with the success of the Next Generation 2.0 Leadership Initiative in its inaugural year”, says Interim Vice Chancellor Johnson. “It holds great promise to prepare our campus for leadership succession with a diverse pool of skilled talent. “
Participants complete a yearlong curriculum that prepares them to step into and/or create leadership opportunities in their units and schools. In addition, participants identify, plan and implement a capstone project that responds to an identified need of their unit or the campus.
Selection Guidelines and an online application for the 2016-17 cohort are now available at: http://ofw.iupui.edu/Leadership/IUPUI-Next-20-Leadership-Initiative
