APLU’s Council on Research (CoR) Research Leader Fellowship Program is designed to provide training and skill development to individuals who work closely in various capacities as or with the University’s Chief Research Officer (Vice Presidents/Vice Provosts/Vice Chancellors for Research), including those who aspire to transition into CRO (VPR/VCR) positions in the future. The Research Leader Fellowship Program will leverage APLU CoR’s network of research leaders and allow fellows to grow knowledge and connections across areas of expertise and to expand relationships between and among professional organizations, APLU, and institutions. The Research Leader Fellowship Program is intended to enhance leadership training already occurring at some institutions and within some regions and organizations.
Many research leaders focus their responsibilities and the application of their knowledge in specific research support areas such as research administration, research development, research compliance, research communication, economic development, and sponsored programs. Very few have the opportunity within their institutions to develop expertise in areas outside of their immediate responsibilities, including those activities delegated to direct reports. APLU CoR meetings provide an excellent opportunity to be exposed to the breadth of areas relevant to the academic research enterprise, and the CoR Research Leader Fellowship Program will enable research leaders to increase the depth of their knowledge in one or more areas of interest by allowing the Fellow to: develop expertise and skill in multiple areas relevant to leading a research agenda within an academic institution; experience broad leadership training, peer mentoring, and networking across public and land-grant institutions; and contribute new knowledge and new elective practices to benefit all CoR members, APLU institutions, and stakeholders of the academic research enterprise.
Please contact Research Leader Fellowship Program coordinators Drs. Jim Reecy (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Jane Strasser (email@example.com) with any questions.
