Congratulations to Melissa Feuer, CPS’s assistant dean of students, for being selected as an inaugural member of GW’s Academic Leadership Academy.
Feuer will participate in the yearlong, cohort-based program designed to further develop the skills of effective academic leaders, a new initiative organized by GW’s Office of the Provost.
“A cadre of talented academic leaders is critical to the smooth functioning and operation of the university,” Provost Forrest Maltzman said. “The simple fact of the matter is that organizations with strong academic leaders who have the trust of their communities and deep understanding of the challenges thrive, while those that don’t struggle. We need to help our leaders be successful.”
The program was designed to facilitate cross-institutional networking among academic leaders while building leadership capacity for the participating schools and units. It focuses on imparting institutional knowledge, self-development, skill-building, networking and coaching.
Feuer was selected through a nomination process and had to meet eligibility requirements set by the Provost’s office, including a minimum of five years of professional experience in a university setting, a strong faculty background and an interest in serving in an academic leadership position at GW.
Feuer will join the other Cohort members for seven seminars throughout the year, as well as lead a project that will serve as a case study to apply her learning and invest additional time to complete required assignments.
