I am excited to share that the Academic Professional Leadership Program has been redesigned to include both civil service and academic professional staff. Under its new name - Professional Staff Leadership Academy - the program will continue to include a robust group of dynamic speakers, engaging and interactive leadership activities, facility tours, state legislative education, relevant literature reviews, system-wide networking, and a mentor program.
Applications for the third cohort to begin in 2021 are now being accepted. Candidates for the program must meet eligibility requirements and possess the desire and passion to contribute to the overall success of their respective university as well as the system. Note: for the 2021 cohort, the one-time fee to the participant's department is reduced to $500 to reflect current bugetary constraints. To view program goals, curriculum, and information about the application process, please see the System Human Resources website at https://www.hr.uillinois.edu/employeedevelopment/PSLA
