Human ecology professors Amanda Guyer, Jonathan London and Michael Rios, as well as nutrition professor Fawaz George Haj and plant sciences professors Andrew Latimer and Astrid Volder, have been accepted into the Faculty Leadership Academy.
The program builds leadership skills in tenured UC Davis faculty, enabling them to take on increasingly responsible roles in their units, departments, the college and the campus.
“The Faculty Leadership Academy has been in place for more than 15 years, and it provides an excellent opportunity for selected faculty members to develop and hone their leadership skills,” said the program’s director, Lisa Brodkey. “Many of our current campus leaders are alumni of the academy, including CA&ES Executive Associate Dean Mary Delany and Associate Dean Anita Oberbauer.”
The six-session program begins in January on the Davis campus with 25 participants. It was formerly known as the Leadership Development Program. More information is available from the Academic Affairs Faculty Leadership Academy website.
