Faculty Leads

To better prepare for leadership positions, 14 School of Nursing faculty participated in Faculty Leads, a program developed by the University’s Office of Human Resources Leadership and Talent Development team.

The program is designed to equip emerging faculty leaders with the capacity and skills to lead effectively and proactively address challenges and opportunities. Topics include vision, collaboration, resiliency, conflict, accountability, finance, engagement, equity and diversity, and alumni and foundation development. The program is designed to assist faculty in developing leadership skills, capacity and readiness so they are positioned to take on larger leadership roles and effectively address departmental challenges.

“Our school knows the importance of investing in emerging faculty leaders and is proactively supporting them in developing these essential leadership traits,” said Dean Connie White Delaney, PhD, RN, FAAN, FACMI, FNAP.

Faculty recently completed the year-long programming by presenting small group projects.

Participants included both tenure track and clinical faculty members. They are Sarah Hoffman, Samantha Sommerness, Carol Flaten, Carolyn Porta, Mary Benbenek, Lisiane Pruinelli, Barb McMorris, Rozina Bhimani, Robin Austin, Melissa Horning, Mary Goering, Shanda Demorest, Teddie Potter and Anne McKechnie.
