Dr. Noel Mazade (Office of Research and Engagement) received new funding from North Carolina State University for the project “Nonprofit Leadership Fellows Academy, 2020-2021.”
The NC State University School of Public and International Affairs, in partnership with NC Department of Health and Human Services’ (NCDHHS) Division of Mental Health, Developmental Disabilities and Substance Abuse Services (DMH/DD/SAS), and UNC Greensboro will deliver and evaluate the Leadership Fellows Academy (LFA) for Academy Alums (Fellows).
The intent of the Leadership Fellows Academy is to further inculcate leadership capacities in individuals, throughout the organizations they lead, and within the communities in which they live and serve. To date, the Academy, based on the conceptual framework of Ronald Heifetz , has developed technical and adaptive leadership skills needed for today’s leaders in three cohorts of Fellows.
The program goal for the FY21 Academy is for Fellows to build on this foundation to strengthen and grow the consumer run organization ecosystem by working together as community leaders, sharing what they have learned about managing and operating consumer run organizations in their communities, across North Carolina, and around the country.
