Academic Leadership Forums

 

The Office of the Vice Provost for Faculty Affairs typically conducts several half-day Academic Leadership Forums each year for University deans, associate deans, department heads, and other academic administrators. The Academic Leadership Forum Planning Committee helps to identify topics and speakers for the forums. The topics vary each year depending on what contemporary issues are occurring in U.S. higher education and at Penn State.

Participation in Academic Leadership Forums is by invitation only. Unless otherwise noted, the forums typically are held from 8:00 a.m. to  Noon, starting with a continental breakfast.
