About the Program

The Emerging Leaders Program started in 2016 and is designed for associate and full professors who have attained tenure. Over the course of nine months, participants take part in several activities including a fall weekend workshop, monthly workshops, small-group work, and a 360-degree assessment. The program is a collaboration between the Office of the Provost, the Office of the Executive Vice President for Research,  the Institute for Leadership and Social Impact, and the Office of Graduate Education and Faculty Development.

2021-2022 Cohort Selected

The sixth cohort of Georgia Tech’s Emerging Leaders Program has been selected. Starting in Fall 2021 and continuing through Spring 2022, participants will take part in a number of leadership development activities, including a fall weekend workshop, monthly workshops, small-group work, and a 360-degree assessment.

“I’m excited to welcome the sixth cohort of the Emerging Leaders Program,” said Steven W. McLaughlin, provost and executive vice president for Academic Affairs. “The program supports faculty invested in pursuing their leadership journey, which benefits the Institute’s strategic plan goals and the Georgia Tech community as a whole.”
