As part of faculty development efforts, the Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education (KCPE) has planned a series of workshops to address the personal, interpersonal and organizational issues faced by early career underrepresented faculty of color. Kentucky colleges and universities were asked to nominate faculty members for the Academic Leadership Development Institute.

Several faculty members at the University of Kentucky were nominated. Ultimately, three were chosen to participate in the program.

The Academic Leadership Development Institute will conduct two sessions in the spring, two sessions in the fall and will also require participants to choose an administrator outside of their home institution to shadow on a project-based experience. The first session will be held in conjunction with the annual Student Success Summit April 2-4, in Louisville.
