Applications sought for 2012-13 Administrative Fellows Program

Applications are being sought for the Administrative Fellows Program for 2012-13. The program offers Penn State faculty and staff who hold standing positions the opportunity to work with senior University officers to gain knowledge and experiences pertaining to the challenges of leadership in the academic community. Mentors will be Rodney Erickson, executive vice president and provost; Damon Sims, vice president for Student Affairs; and Craig Weidemann, vice president for Outreach. The length of the program is for the academic year.

The program also provides the chance for participants to strengthen their administrative talents and qualifications by working with a Penn State administrator in a mentoring relationship. Fellows increase their understanding of the contexts within which decisions are made and gain an enhanced understanding of the various units across the University.

An informational meeting will take place from 10 to 11 a.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 9, in the conference room in 201 Old Main. The meeting is for those interested in the program and is designed to allow past fellows to field questions from prospective fellows. Anyone interested in attending should RSVP to Katryn Boynton on or before Monday, Nov. 7, either by email at or by telephone at 814-863-7494.
