Rutgers Academic Leadership Program


The Rutgers Academic Leadership Program (RUALP) provides a forum for disseminating information on policies and practices, addressing theoretical and practical problems of academic leadership, sharing effective practices across disciplines, and creating a collaborative network of administrators and faculty members charged with providing academic leadership for the institution.

RUALP is sponsored by the Center for Organizational Leadership (OL), the Graduate School-NB, Chancellor-NB, and the Office of the Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs. The RUALP program is co-chaired by Dr. Barbara Bender, Associate Dean, Graduate School, New Brunswick; and Dr. Brent Ruben, Distinguished Professor of Communication and Executive Director of OL. For further information, contact OL at or Dr. Bender at

Rutgers is a member of the Big Ten Academic Alliance.  We are actively engaged with the CIC in areas related to leadership development, among others, and our affiliation will provide a variety of opportunities for Rutgers faculty and academic administrators.  For further information on CIC activities related to leadership development go to, or contact: Brent Ruben, who serves as Rutgers liaison to these CIC Programs.
