The Leadership Development Program
The University of Missouri seeks nominations for the Leadership Development Program (LDP) each spring for a fall cohort. The LDP is an exciting year-long effort to provide leadership development opportunities and ongoing support to academic leaders on all four campuses.
The LDP begins with a three-day session in the fall. It is an opportunity to assess leadership styles, work with other academic leaders to solve actual problems, expand an informal network of expertise, enhance personal leadership skills, and work with other emerging leaders at the University of Missouri. In addition to the intensive fall component, all participants will meet four times throughout the year for one-day sessions to concentrate on topics of interest to the group. Furthermore, local campus groups meet about once a month to discuss common concerns, upcoming campus initiatives, and share ideas and advice.
Department chairs and other academic leaders are encouraged to visit with their dean and/or provost about being nominated for participation. The Provost on each campus along with the Academic Deans will formally recommend candidates. The application is available on this website. The nomination forms are due in the Provost’s office in the spring. For details, please see the nomination form.
Note: Typically, we receive more applications than we can accept. Unfortunately, not all nominees will be selected for participation in the Leadership Development Program. The goal is to identify a diverse group of leaders who represent all campuses and disciplines and include a wide range of experience and expertise. This will be an ongoing program and all interested academic leaders are encouraged to apply for participation in future sessions.
