The marquette felos Program

(Faculty Exploring Leadership Opportunities)

The FELOS program has been carefully designed to introduce faculty to the complexities, challenges, and joys of leadership with a specific emphasis on academic leadership at a Catholic and Jesuit university. The program, which takes place over the course of a full academic year with eight full days of training and two half-days, is primarily geared toward associate and full professors who are either new to campus leadership or aspire toward a leadership role.

Through the program, faculty will gain greater insight into their own personal leadership characteristics, examine various leadership philosophies and develop or enrich their own, gain a better understanding of the Marquette University structure and how various areas interact, prepare for the many challenges facing leaders in higher education today, increase their ability to successfully take on a campus leadership role, and reflect on Ignatian principles of leadership within a university environment.

These outcomes will emerge through a series of readings, videos, speakers (internal and external to Marquette University), diagnostic instruments, group exercises and discussions, journaling opportunities, and work with a leadership coach. Faculty will find these activities, individually and collectively, to be thoughtful, challenging, insightful, and transformational.

The 2018-19 cohort has been selected (see link below). Applicants for the 2019-20 cohort will be available September 2018. For more information, please contact Dr. Gary Meyer, senior vice provost for faculty affairs, at faculty.affairs@marquette.edu.
