Due to the COVID-19 health crisis, the Faculty Leadership Fellowship Program is on hold for the 2020–21 academic year.
The year-long Faculty Leadership Fellowship (FLF) offers training, tools, and support for Mills College faculty who are transitioning into leadership roles, as well as seasoned faculty leaders who wish to deepen their strengths as leaders.
We pay particular attention to the gendered dynamics of leadership and issues for leaders of color. Research demonstrates that women leaders and leaders of color face specific challenges to thriving as leaders, from gendered and racialized role expectations to juggling the demands of being a primary caregiver. At the same time, women leaders and leaders of color may develop unique strengths in areas such as collaboration, resiliency, and mentoring.
This program is designed to support faculty leaders in building an equitable leadership culture, creating a supportive network of fellows, identifying strengths, and shoring up areas in need of attention. Cohort meetings are facilitated facilitated by the dean of faculty.
