Administered by the Office of Human Resources, the primary goals of the Presidents Emerging Leaders program are to: identify, prepare, and support new leadership within the University of Minnesota; to create a larger pool of candidates to fill open positions and/or leadership assignments; and to create an organizational expectation whereby all administrators assume responsibility for identifying and nurturing potential leaders.
Each year, the President's Emerging Leaders Program offers a new cohort — a structured but flexible development opportunity for selected high potential P & A, Civil Service and Bargaining Unit staff to further prepare themselves to provide significant leadership at the University. A small cohort of individuals nominated by University leaders and then selected by a special review committee to participate in a 12-month program that features both educational and experiential components. Program components are aimed at fostering a broad perspective of the University as an enterprise and promoting skill development that enhances the participants' effectiveness.
