On Friday, September 8, the Rutgers Center for Organizational Leadership welcomed the 12th cohort of the PreDoctoral Leadership Development Academy (PLDA). The new cohort consists of 19 Fellows, with representation from Camden, Newark, New Brunswick, and RBHS.
The PreDoctoral Leadership Development Academy is a one year program designed to provide doctoral students from a broad array of academic disciplines with the supplemental knowledge and skills needed for academic and administrative leadership roles. Since the program’s inception in 2010, over 200 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 and issues facing higher education, enhance their leadership competencies, and strengthen their network of colleagues from across Rutgers who demonstrate a shared interest in leadership development.
