Suzanne Gulledge, clinical professor of teacher education and chair of the faculty at the School of Education, has been named a 2014-2015 Academic Leadership Program Fellow.

The Academic Leadership Program is an initiative of UNC’s Institute for the Arts and Humanities, designed to help prepare and support current and emerging Carolina academic leaders. Gulledge was one of eight faculty members from across campus chosen for the 2014-15 cohort of the program.

Fellows taking part in the yearlong program will engage in activities to help develop leadership skills, clarify career commitments and build a leadership support network within the campus and extend contacts with other leaders beyond the campus.

The program includes a week of leadership training with the Center for Creative Leadership in Greensboro and seminars in which ALP fellows discuss issues facing the University and formulate possible responses.

The program also provides ongoing support for participants beyond their fellowship year by offering them additional workshops, short courses on advanced topics in academic leadership and other opportunities.

To be eligible for the program, prospective fellows must be tenured, or be a fixed-term faculty member with at least seven years of UNC service in a primarily instructional role.

The other 2014-15 ALP Fellows are
  • Giselle Corbie-Smith, M.D., Kenan Distinguished Professor, director, Center for Health Equity Research, School of Medicine.
  • Michael Emch, professor and chair, geography.
  • Stephen Leonard, associate professor, political science.
  • Elizabeth Mayer-Davis, professor and chair of the department of nutrition, School of Public Health.
  • Layna Mosley, professor, political science.
  • Eric Muller, Dan K. Moore Distinguished Professor of Law in Jurisprudence and Ethics, School of Law.
  • Joan Taylor, professor, department of pathology, School of Medicine, associate director, McAllister Heart Institute.
