The Academic Affairs Faculty Fellows Program offers a unique faculty leadership development
experience to some of the most accomplished faculty at the University of Wyoming.
The program complements the University’s strategic goal and commitment to develop
and mentor effective leadership by providing intense and focused experiences in leadership
and administrative roles at the senior levels of the institution.
Fellows will work with the Provost and executive team, as well as other administrative
and faculty leaders across the University on mission central projects that help to
advance institutional goals in faculty excellence, academic policy, institutional
data, distance education, and student success.
As part of the program, fellows will become familiar with university-wide academic
initiatives, strategic planning, budget issues, and challenges in higher education.
In addition, fellows will make direct contributions to the Provost’s Office by taking
on special projects and assisting in day-to-day routine activities. The goal of the
program is to provide exceptional faculty members with a more expansive range of leadership
experiences at the university level.

organizational success by leading and managing change.
