(Sept. 22, 2017) -- Leadership UTSA recently welcomed its 9th cohort. Leadership UTSA (LUTSA) is a leadership development program comprised of faculty and staff from every division of the University. The twenty participants are nominated by their divisional vice president. UTSA executive leadership look for leadership potential within their staff and faculty and nominate those who display potential to be the university’s next generation of leaders. This program has proven to be one of UTSA’s most dynamic programs in leadership development and supports the UT System Chancellor’s Leadership Initiative. LUTSA has been shared with other universities at conferences and research regarding the success of the program is in the 2017 SACRAO Journal.
The 2017-2018 cohort is listed below:
The cohort meets once a month September through April. Each participant is paired with a senior level executive mentor during the spring to further explore leadership styles while attending meetings and discussing the experiences of their mentor. This involvement along with dedicated opportunities to interact with each division’s vice president office provides participants with a deeper understanding of the university in which they work. Following a peer selection process, participants have the opportunity to serve on the leadership team the following year for the next LUTSA cohort.
Alumni of the program have achieved success after LUTSA as ACE Fellows, Department Chairs, Deans, Directors and Associate Vice Presidents. In addition to career advancement, participants leave with an increased awareness of their leadership potential and a better understanding of their university and their colleagues within it. It is an invitation to critically think about leadership and one’s relationship with leadership long after the 8 monthly sessions have ended.
