Mentoring for Leadership in Mission will examine how church-related schools develop faculty leaders who shape, articulate, animate, and promote institutional mission. Special attention will be given to mentoring mid-career  and senior faculty to advance institutional mission. Specifically, the workshop will address such questions as:

  • What does it mean for faculty to take leadership in mission and why is this critical to institutional vitality?
  • How can institutions nurture and develop post-tenure faculty who articulate, animate, and promote mission across the institution as teachers, chairs, deans, or senior administrators?
  • Why do certain faculty members become leaders in mission?
  • What institutional structures support or hinder faculty leadership in institutional mission?
  • What does it look like to develop leaders in mission and how can my institution take steps to do so?

Each institution is eligible to register one senior administrator (president, vice president, academic dean, provost, or equivalent) or, given the topic, a relevant administrator. One academic administrator from an LFP Network school  may attend the Workshop for Senior Administrators at no cost. Accommodations, meals, and travel reimbursements of up to $600 will be provided for those who register. Space  is limited; additional participants from member schools will be wait-listed until after  August 31 and will be enrolled as slots become available after that date.
