Chancellor’s Leadership Fellowship

Chancellor’s Leadership Fellowship

cultivating future campus leaders

The Chancellor’s Leadership Fellowship (CLF) program seeks to cultivate future campus leaders by offering a half-time, one-year temporary appointment to an administrative area on campus, and providing mentoring from the leaders of the host units. During the year, Fellows are expected to launch a significant program. Chancellor’s Leadership Fellows also engage with their cohort through a mutual mentoring group of Fellows. 

The CLF nomination and application process commences annually in January. Full-time tenured faculty, senior lecturers, and librarians on continuing appointments are eligible for the fellowship which is administered by the Office of Faculty Development.
