The University System of Georgia has named the 2021-2022 class of its Executive Leadership Institute, including 34 faculty and staff members from 25 USG institutions and the University System Office.
Paul Klute, director of UGA’s Office of Institutional Research, is among those participating in this year’s class.
“USG strongly supports investing in the development and retention of our future USG leaders, and these class members represent the best of faculty and staff across the state who will lead us into the future,” Vice Chancellor for Leadership & Institutional Development Stuart Rayfield said. “We congratulate them for this honor, and look forward to working with them as they continue to evolve and grow in their leadership development.”
For over a decade, USG has hosted ELI for faculty and staff who are ready for a Cabinet-level position in the near future. Presidents nominate one academic leader and one staff leader to apply. From the nominees, individuals are selected for the six-month program during which they engage in a leadership development curriculum that includes content, personal growth, job shadowing and cross-mentoring. This year’s class begins Nov. 16, 2021.
