Professor Arias Selected for Academic Leadership Institute

September 7th, 2023

Santa Arias, Professor and Head of the Department of Spanish and Portuguese, is one of 20 faculty and staff members chosen for the 2023-24 Academic Leadership Institute.


In its 14th year, the nine-month program is designed to strengthen current and future leaders throughout the University.


The program, a partnership between the Division of Human Resources and the Office of the Provost, consists of six all-day sessions focusing on several aspects of leadership, two “Leadership in Action” workshops with campus leaders, and peer coaching sessions where fellows can interact with program facilitators in smaller groups.


A four-person advisory panel selects fellows from a pool of more than 100 applicants each year, with a goal of creating a strong mix of faculty and staff members from units throughout campus. See the full list of this year's Academic Leadership Institute Fellows here.
