Sarah Lubienski, Associate Dean of Graduate Studies and Professor of Curriculum and Instruction, has been named a recipient of the Academic Leadership Program, which helps develop leadership skills of professors who may pursue careers in academic administration.
“I am very happy to be selected for the Academic Leadership Program,” Lubienski said. “I look forward to discussing the dilemmas, challenges and joys of leadership with more experienced leaders from within IU and across the Big Ten.”
The program is sponsored by the Big 10 Academic Alliance, made up of the 14 universities in the Big Ten conference and the University of Chicago. All participants selected from the member universities will participate in three seminars hosted by Big 10 Academic Alliance universities and will take part in campus-based meetings and programs with administrative leaders.
Established in 1989, the Academic Leadership Program has developed leadership and managerial skills of nearly 1,000 fellows, many of whom have gone on to serve with distinction as college presidents, provosts and deans. The program is oriented to address the challenges of academic administration at major research universities and to help faculty members prepare to meet them.
