Indiana University Names 2012-2013 CIC Academic Leadership Fellows

Jul 10, 2012

Four Indiana University Bloomington faculty members have been selected to take part in the Academic Leadership Program, an intensive experience that develops the leadership and managerial skills of faculty who have demonstrated exceptional ability and academic promise.

Academic Leadership Program fellows for 2012-13 are:

  • Dennis Groth, associate professor and associate dean for undergraduate studies in the School of Informatics and Computing and IU Bloomington associate vice provost.
  • John Lucaites, professor in the Department of Communication and Culture and associate dean for the humanities in the College of Arts and Sciences.
  • Shannon Martin, professor and associate dean for research and graduate studies in the School of Journalism.
  • Ajay Mehrotra, professor, Louis F. Niezer Faculty Fellow and associate dean for research of the IU Maurer School of Law.
Faculty members are nominated by their institutions for participation in the Academic Leadership Program and are chosen because their records of scholarship and significant university service point to their growing achievements as academic leaders.

"The Academic Leadership Program provides invaluable training and support for faculty members who are making the transition to administrative positions," said Thomas Gieryn, vice provost for faculty and academic affairs. "I look forward to working with the 2012-13 ALP fellows as they develop leadership skills that will serve the needs of the IU Bloomington campus."
