Santa Arias, Professor and Head of the Department of Spanish and Portuguese, is one of 20 faculty and staff members chosen for the 2023-24 Academic Leadership Institute.


In its 14th year, the nine-month program is designed to strengthen current and future leaders throughout the University.


The program, a partnership between the Division of Human Resources and the Office of the Provost, consists of six all-day sessions focusing on several aspects of leadership, two “Leadership in Action” workshops with campus leaders, and peer coaching sessions where fellows can interact with program facilitators in smaller groups.


A four-person advisory panel selects fellows from a pool of more than 100 applicants each year, with a goal of creating a strong mix of faculty and staff members from units throughout campus. See the full list of this year's Academic Leadership Institute Fellows here.
