Faculty Leadership Academy Testimonials

2016 Leadership Academy for Early Career Faculty Participants

“This program was amazing and by far the best professional development program I have ever attended. I looked forward to each session and felt sad when it concluded this week...This program delivered on what was promised at the onset--that we would have tools to put into practice immediately. This was true from the very first session. I was instantly inspired to try out some of these techniques with co-workers, family and friends. Every faculty member should take this course!”

"This program was very well organized, the material presented was always outstanding, as well as the speakers. I can't wait to put into practice all what I've learned. I enjoyed it so much that I am sad it's over."

"It's an exceptional program and I benefitted from it a great deal. It helped me navigate this early career stage and was very valuable."

"The leadership course was well thought, organized and effectively implemented. I am certain it will help me in my career moving forward and hope to practice what was taught over the year."

"I have learned a great amount from the Academy and have met many of my peers that will be a great resource during my development as a leader. It has introduced me to many topics that I can now explore further and that have not only contributed to my leadership skills/abilities, but also to my personal development."

"I would recommend this program to anyone--not just junior faculty."
