Executive Leadership Academy Fellows

Page address:

Executive Leadership Program sponsored by President's Commission on Diversity (PCD)

Each year, the President’s Commission on Diversity at MSU Mankato selects one faculty member who desires to move into a higher education leadership role to attend the University of Berkeley Executive Leadership Academy (ELA). The Commission is currently seeking  candidates to attend ELA in July 2018.

Entering its seventh year, ELA has graduated 200 fellows. They have different backgrounds and come from different states or countries, but they all desire to become a university director, dean, provost, or president. They attend the intensive five-day academy and receive a certificate in executive leadership.
