Boulder Faculty Assembly

Leadership Institute

The BFA Leadership Institute is developing the next generation of CU campus leaders.

Each year, a group of peer-nominated faculty will meet regularly with senior members of the University administration, including the Chancellor, the Provost, Vice-Chancellors, and Deans.  During these meetings, each administrator will have the opportunity to explain what his or her department does, how it functions, what impact that department has upon the activities of the University as a whole, and how that department’s actions affect the daily work of the faculty.

Formal meetings of the leadership cohort take place once per month, with informal get-togethers occurring more frequently to encourage and build upon the relationships between participants.

Commenced in the 2013-14 academic year with 16 participants, the BFA Leadership Institute will continue in future years to build a bridge between faculty and administration.

Faculty members interested in either nominating a faculty member to participate in the Leadership Institute or are interested in participating personally are encouraged to contact the BFA office for nominating information
