Call for Nominations


The Presidential Leadership Fellows program is seeking arts and humanities faculty committed to the principles of justice, equity, diversity, and inclusivity in leadership.

The University of Utah launched the Presidential Leadership Fellows program in 2017, with the goal to foster talented, emerging leaders with administrative potential. Now with a generous $1.3 million grant from the Mellon Foundation, the program will expand to a consortium model including Salt Lake Community College, Utah State University, University of Utah, and Weber State University.

The Presidential Leadership Fellows program aims to increase the number of academic leaders from the arts and humanities, specifically those historically excluded and underrepresented from the ranks of chairs, deans, and university presidents. The fellows participate at the top levels of campus leadership; professional and development activities; and mentoring sessions from the president, cabinet members, and other leaders in higher education.

The Presidential Leadership Fellows program is seeking underrepresented, faculty — with a focus on people of color and members of the LGBTQIA+ community and a preference for tenured, associate professors and professors — committed to the principles of justice, equity, diversity, and inclusivity in leadership with a professional background in the arts and humanities. Qualifying individuals from any of the consortium institutions (Salt Lake Community College, Utah State University, University of Utah, and Weber State University) are encouraged to apply using the application below.

Nominations and applications will be accepted through Tuesday, September 20, 2022, at 11:59 p.m. MT.
