Now Accepting Nominations for RLA 2024-2025

We are pleased to announce that nominations are open until April 5 for faculty and staff participation in the eighth cohort of the Rutgers Leadership Academy (RLA).

RLA is a university-wide, one-year program that brings together mid-career faculty and academic staff who aspire to broadened leadership roles. Mid-career faculty and staff who work in academic units are eligible to be nominated for participation in the program.

The program consists of approximately 15 virtual and in-person sessions on Wednesday evenings throughout the academic year from 4:00 to 6:00 pm. A list of topics to be addressed in the program can be found here

Nominations for participation in the RLA should be submitted by vice presidents, deans, directors, chairs, or other senior leaders who see the value in creating an expanded cadre of skilled leaders within their unit and the university.
