Who Should Apply?
The Faculty Leadership Program is specifically oriented to early career faculty at the Assistant Professor rank who have been at OUHSC for at least 12 months. Typical candidates are individuals embarking upon their academic careers who the sponsors believe show promise for academic career advancement. Candidates need not be tenure-track faculty. Faculty members from any University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center (OUHSC) college are eligible to apply. A completed application and a letter of recommendation from the candidate’s department chair or dean (e.g., sponsor) are required.
Questions are welcome regarding requirements, scheduling, and/or the mentoring roles of department leaders that facilitate a Faculty Fellow’s success in the program.
Nomination & Selection
Faculty Leadership Program Faculty Fellows are identified through a nomination or application. Selection is based on a review of the candidate’s application and the sponsor’s recommendation letter. The program goal is to convene a balanced class given the backgrounds, goals, and leadership aspirations of the applicant pool and support of the sponsor for the candidate’s full participation. Program fees are to be paid by the sponsoring department (not the candidate). Enrollment in this professional development and mentoring program is limited. Prompt application is recommended.
Tuition for the 2020-2021 Faculty Leadership Program Seminar is $2,000. Tuition is paid by the Faculty Fellows’ sponsor and is due in advance of the August Orientation session. Tuition covers syllabus materials, reference books, refreshments and meals, meeting space and overnight accommodations for a leadership retreat. Tuition is based on annual expenses; the program can be completed in one year. Please note: there are no tuition refunds after the start of the program. Sponsoring departments are responsible for tuition, not Faculty Fellows.
