Rutgers Center for Organizational Leadership is pleased to announce the 2021-2022 PreDoctoral Leadership Development Academy Fellows. The shift to a hybrid program allowed us to accept our largest cohort this year, with a total of 25 Fellows representing all four campuses.
The PreDoctoral Leadership Development Academy (PLDA) is a one-year program designed to provide doctoral students from a broad array of academic disciplines with the leadership, communication, and organizational knowledge and skills needed for academic and administrative leadership roles. Since the program’s inception in 2010, nearly 148 doctoral students representing over 60 academic departments have participated in the program.
Through participation in this collaborative learning program, the PLDA Fellows will have an opportunity to develop a deeper understanding of the challenges confronting higher education, foster engagement with university strategy, enhance their leadership competencies, and strengthen their network of colleagues from across Rutgers who demonstrate a shared interest in leadership development.
