The Faculty Leadership Institute is a program and space for faculty across the University of Colorado Boulder campus to work together to break down barriers and build community, collaboration, and connectedness across schools, programs, and departments. The Faculty Leadership Institute also offers each cohort the opportunity to engage in targeted discussions with campus leaders on current campus issues and to build leadership skills. Since its inception in 2013, FLI has had over 125 fellows.

A group of 12-15 faculty members are chosen to make up the new leadership class each year. Monthly meetings throughout the academic year focus on two types of activities: 

Meetings with campus leadership: During these meetings, leaders explain their role in the university, share their leadership path, and engage in an open conversation on topics of concern to the faculty.

 Leadership skill development: Opportunities for leadership training are provided through workshops taught by certified experts throughout the year.

While formal meetings of the leadership cohort occur monthly, informal get-togethers occurring more frequently are encouraged and build upon the relationships between participants. 

Faculty members interested in participating should complete an application form during the annual application period in the spring semester.  Preference is given to Associate Professors and Senior Instructors, although all ranks are welcome to apply.  For more information, please contact Faculty Fellow, Anu Sharma, for this leadership program.

The application for the 2022-2023 class is now closed. The deadline for the 2023-2024 application will be April 28, 2023.
