Higher Education Resource Servies (HERS) Leadership Institute
In prior years, RBHS has supported faculty attendance in the HERS Leadership Institute (HLI). RBHS will again support all costs for up to three faculty candidates. In addition, this year there will be the opportunity for a staff member to be supported by the Chancellor’s office. The supported faculty and staff will be provided with a Chancellor’s letter of support for the application.
The format eligible for Chancellor’s funds is the Intensive HLI – 9 Day Residential Program in June 5-15, 2023 (Bridgewater, MA).
HLI plays a critical role in improving the low percentage of women in leadership roles in academia. HERS is dedicated to creating and sustaining a community of women leaders through leadership development programs and other strategies with a special focus on gender equity within the broader commitment to achieving equality and excellence in higher education. The course provides a concentrated training program to assist women in mid to senior level positions in academia to prepare them to assume senior leadership roles, and to enhance their leadership as decision makers at all levels of the institution. The program website is: https://www.hersnetwork.org/programs/hers-institute/.
