Applications now being sought
for Administrative Fellows Program

The Administrative Fellows Program offers faculty and staff the opportunity to work with senior University officers to gain knowledge and experiences pertaining to the challenges of leadership in the academic community.

The program provides the chance for participants to strengthen their administrative talents and qualifications by working with a University administrator in a mentoring relationship.

Mentors for the 2003-04 academic year will be Rodney A. Erickson, executive vice president and provost of the University; Eva J. Pell, vice president for research and dean of The Graduate School; or Gary C. Schultz, senior vice president for Finance and Business/Treasurer.

The fellow who will work with the provost already has been named, but the selection committee encourages all interested individuals to submit an application to the program to work with one of the two other mentors. The length of the program is for the academic year and applications will be available in October.

A luncheon designed to allow past fellows to field questions from prospective future fellows, has been scheduled for 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 13, in the Alumni Lounge of The Nittany Lion Inn on the University Park campus.

RSVP to Katryn Boynton on or before Nov. 1 by calling (814) 863-7494 or e-mailing
