Thirty UNCG employees from throughout the university were welcomed Jan. 31 as the 2013 UNCG Leadership Institute class. A large group of mentors and university leaders were on hand at the reception as well.
Chancellor Linda P. Brady said the UNCG Leadership Institute is a great vehicle for bringing together emerging leaders at UNCG. The participants will interact with many others who share a high level of commitment to moving UNCG forward.
She also noted many at the kickoff reception who were participants last year – and who are now mentoring members of the current class. “That’s the ripple effect,” she said.
Reade Taylor, vice chancellor for business affairs, and Dr. Edna Chun, associate vice chancellor for human resources, offered remarks as well.
The program is designed to provide staff, faculty and administrators with a significant, year-long opportunity to increase their leadership skills and accelerate their own leadership performance and readiness at the unit, department or division level.
The participants this year are:
Mitzi W. Burchinal
Dr. Roberto E. Campo
