The Tulane University Leadership Institute is accepting applications for its Emerging Leaders and Anti-Racism Leadership programs for 2022, now through Nov. 12.
The Tulane Leadership Institute, an initiative of a Plan for Now, seeks to identify and nurture future university leaders while enhancing the skills, insight and vision of current leaders.
The Emerging Leaders Program focuses on the development and support of Tulanians’ leadership and management skills and provides the opportunity for participants to cultivate effective behaviors to implement strategy and lead change in their respective departments and beyond.
Eric Beverly, director of operations at the Tulane Center for Sport, was part of the first cohort of the Emerging Leaders program last year.
“The Tulane University Leadership Institute programming provides faculty and staff with the opportunity to network with individuals in leadership positions and subject matter experts,” Beverly said. “These engagements provide in-depth insights in areas of strategic thinking, EDI, emotional intelligence and organizational development. The programming has been very beneficial to my professional development as a leader in my department. I have learned practical strategies that I can implement real-time in my professional work. I recommend this program to all who want to further develop professionally and expand their Tulane network,” Beverly said.
The Anti-Racism Leadership Program (ARLP) offers leaders the opportunity to develop the skills and understanding that are fundamental to contribute to institutional anti-racism initiatives and leadership universitywide.
“Besides my PhD, my time in the ARLP has been the most transformative investment I made in my adult life,” Daniela Rivero Bryant, lecturer in Real Estate at the School of Architecture, said.
“The relationships we built as a cohort of people from all over the university helped me better understand Tulane and are the most valuable takeaway for me. I now see our ‘institution’ for the real and complex human system it is, instead of just an organization chart. A close second-best in this program is the opportunity to take a deep dive into anti-racism, as we discuss the research, best practices and strategies with many local and outside experts. These topics are not directly related to my academic field of expertise, so I had little exposure to them despite their importance in our society,” Rivero Bryant said.
