Provost's Leadership Opportunity Grants (PLOG)
Provost’s Leadership Opportunity Grants (PLOG) are offered through funding from the Office of the Provost with advisory support from Faculty Career Development (FCD) in the Innovative Learning Institute (ILI). The goal of these grants is to provide professional development opportunities for faculty to support their career advancement related to leadership. Good leadership is founded on mutual purpose and good character. More broadly, leadership can be demonstrated in the classroom, in governance, or the conference room through collegiality and ethical behavior. The role of leader can be groomed more formally like that of department chair, unit director, or dean. However, informal leadership roles can be possessed and honed by all through reading, resource sharing, and skills developed through lifelong learning and professional development.
This grant program is designed particularly for faculty members who are committed to the future of RIT and who:
- aspire to a leadership role in the future or are serving in a leadership role;
- want to expand knowledge about leadership in higher education;
- have a desire to learn more about the role effective academic leadership plays in academia.
The grants will provide support for projects/activities related to leadership development and/or attendance at leadership development programs.
Further information about eligibility, important dates, the selection process, and the application are available through the Faculty Career Development Website.
