Initiative for Inclusive Leadership

Launched in 2019, San Diego State University’s faculty leadership development initiative is pleased to announce that its 2022 program will be open to faculty colleagues both at SDSU and at participating campuses (CSU Monterey Bay, CSU Humboldt State University, CSU Dominguez Hills, San Francisco State University, and CSU East Bay) across the CSU system.  

The Building With Inclusive Leadership workshop will take place May 23 - 24, 2022, at the Parma Payne Alumni Center on the San Diego State University Campus.

As articulated by our SDSU faculty leadership institute alumni, our goal is to “build on the leadership potential that already exists within the CSU” and “create a pipeline of diverse administrative leaders who are capable of advocating for the core mission of the California State University.”

Participants will
--Develop a future vision of themselves as university academic leaders and a plan for their development
--Identify the strengths and assets--including cultural assets--they bring to leadership as diverse, equity-minded, and inclusion-minded faculty members
--Build relationships with current and emerging CSU leaders 
--Acquire knowledge and skills relevant to mid-level leadership positions including department chair and associate dean
--Become familiar with BIPOC-centered theories of institutional change and leadership 

Funded by the SDSU President’s Budget Advisory Committee, the initiative supports atwo-day faculty leadership institute (held annually), support for institute alum to attend regional and national leadership development events, and the Faculty Futures Lab podcast.
