Academic Leadership Program

2012 Participants

The Academic Leadership Program (ALP) is designed to provide development for Emory's academic leaders. The goals of the program are (1) to strengthen academic leadership performance across the university, and (2) to establish a leadership pipeline for succession planning.


  • A year-long strategic program of case studies, leadership development training, skills sessions, financial management planning, and hands-on projects related to faculty matters at the university.
  • An accelerated program of internal leadership development for the next generation of Emory's academic leaders: current and future chairs, deans, division leaders, and other senior faculty leaders.
  • A vehicle for succession planning that seeks to:
      Retain the university's best faculty;
      Provide concrete opportunities for leadership in academic affairs;
      Promote and develop from within;
      Ensure success at key transitions along the faculty life-course.


  • The ALP is a program offered by the Provost's office and organized by the Office of the Senior Vice Provost for Academic Affairs.
  • Facilitators include both Emory faculty and national experts in leadership development, financial management, faculty recruitment, promotion, and retention, and other academic leadership areas
