Leadership Learning Communities (LLCs)

Leadership Learning Communities | Past Leadership Learning Communities | Proposal

Building on the significant success of F&OD’s Faculty Learning Communities (FLCs), F&OD launched its inaugural Leadership Learning Community (LLC) in Spring 2013.  It was so successful that we have continued to develop new Leadership Learning Communities. Faculty Learning Communities fill a need in higher education generally by enabling colleagues to explore a focused topic with a community of practice over time.  In the case of our Faculty Learning Communities, most- but not all- of the topics have focused on teaching, learning and assessment.  Our new Leadership Learning Communities (LLCs) will focus on topics relevant to leadership and will be open to academic administrators and faculty who wish to pursue formal and informal leadership roles. .  If you have any questions please contact Cindi Leverich at leaders@msu.edu.

Exploring Academic Leadership-2016

Co-facilitated by:
Michael Callahan, Associate Professor and Chairperson, Music Theory Area, College of Music
Kathleen Hoag, Associate Professor and Undergraduate Program Director, Biomedical Laboratory Diagnostics Program, College of Natural Science


This Leadership Learning Community will explore key competencies needed to transition into, and be successful in, formal and/or informal academic leadership roles.  The group will decide on the competencies they would like to cover throughout the year and will explore these topics using a combination of guest speakers, readings, case studies, and discussions. 

Even if you are not able to attend the LLC this year, we encourage you to complete the short survey so we can learn more about your interests and look at different ways we can support leadership development.
