Applications sought for 2019-20 Administrative Fellows Program

Applications are being sought for the Administrative Fellows Program for 2019-20. 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.

The program 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.

Mentors for the 2019-20 academic year will be Penn State President Eric Barron, Executive Vice President and Provost Nicholas Jones, and Vice President for Government and Community Relations Zack Moore. The program begins in early August and ends the following July.

An informational meeting has been scheduled for 9-10:30 a.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 7, in the Poole Conference Room, 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. If you are interested in attending, RSVP to Wendy Blumenthal on or before Friday, Nov. 4, either via e-mail at wjy100@psu.edu or phone at 814‑863-7494.
