The LEEP program will launch in October 2022 to prepare emerging faculty leaders to connect with their staff, embrace decision-making, and lead their research teams with intention. LEEP is designed for faculty who are new to leading research teams. In this six-month cohort program, participants will gain an understanding of leadership fundamentals, connect with peers to discuss strategies and approaches, and begin applying their new skills with their research teams.

Designed and organized by the Office of Faculty Development, this pilot program is intended for research investigators with faculty appointments. Monthly sessions will be facilitated by the Center for Professional Growth. Each prescheduled journal club is a chance to connect with your peers and build upon knowledge gained in facilitated meetings. The program will run from October 2022 - March 2023 on the first and third Friday of each month. Attendance and participation are expected at all sessions*:
