Shrinking budgets across higher education are making it more difficult for institutions to afford professional development programs for talented individuals within their ranks. Two of those future leaders, Dr. Lila McDowell Carlsen from Pepperdine University and Dr. Rénard Harris from College of Charleston, join EAB’s Robert Snyder to talk about their experience as part of the inaugural class of EAB’s new Rising Higher Education Leaders Fellowship.
This nine-month, cohort-based program offers participants an opportunity to learn from EAB experts and each other during interactive monthly sessions as well as a final capstone project. Renard and Lila share what they’ve learned through the Fellowship and offer suggestions to others on how to break down institutional silos and make a real difference at their own institutions.
The Rising Higher Education Leaders Fellowship is a service offering exclusively for EAB’s Global Research Partners. Contact your institution’s Research Strategic Leader or firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more about nominating for the Fellowship.
