Carr to participate in CIC Academic Leadership Program

18 Sep 2015    By University Communications

Tim Carr, chair of the Department of Nutrition and Health Sciences, has been selected to participate on UNL's latest team to attend the Committee on Institutional Cooperation's Academic Leadership Program. He'll join four other UNL fellows at the first seminar in November at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, followed by one in February at the University of Chicago, and the third in April at the University of Maryland. The Office of the Senior Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs sponsors the UNL participation.

The Academic Leadership Program is one of the CIC’s most successful leadership initiatives. Established in 1989, the program develops the academic leadership and managerial skills of nominated faculty who have demonstrated exceptional ability and academic promise. The program addresses the challenges of academic administration at major research universities, while helping faculty members prepare to meet those challenges.

In total, 23 UNL faculty members have participated in the ALP since 2011 and all have significant leadership positions on campus. Associate Vice Chancellor and ALP liaison, Lance C. Pérez says, “The Academic Leadership is one of the many benefits UNL receives from its membership in the CIC. ALP alumnus may be found in high-level leadership positions at many prominent universities. UNL’s 23 past ALP fellows continue to serve the campus and lead important academic initiatives.”
