Applications sought for Big Ten Academic Leadership Program

The University of Nebraska—Lincoln has joined six universities in the Big Ten Academic Alliance to provide expanded online course offerings.

The University of Nebraska–Lincoln is seeking faculty applicants for the Big Ten Academic Alliance’s Academic Leadership Program.

In 2023-24, up to six ALP fellows will attend a combination of virtual and in-person events with the BTAA. They will also participate in conversations on campus throughout the academic year with members of the UNL leadership team. Applicants must be available for all scheduled programming.

The program is designed to further develop the abilities of participants to be effective academic leaders at all levels of research universities. It is intended to help those considering leadership positions understand the university as a dynamic and inclusive institution, and to help them build awareness of the diverse, complex, and changing landscape of higher education while exploring their role in that landscape.

Interested applicants should complete an online application, which includes submitting their letter of interest and current curriculum vitae, by April 17. They should also request that a brief letter of support for their application be sent by their department chair or dean to by April 17.

New this year, the Big Ten Academic Alliance has a grant from the Mellon Foundation that will provide an enhanced two-year experience to select ALP Fellows who work in humanities disciplines. Applicants from the humanities who are interested in being considered for this enhanced program should indicate so when completing the online application form.
