Provost's Emerging Leaders Program, 2021-2022


Used to call this presentation "Chocolate with the Chair" (based on such blockbuster events as "Donuts with the Dean" and "Pizza with the President"), but now I just called it "Embracing Complexity." Great time with the sixth cohort of fantastic current and future leaders at Georgia Tech.

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.” The sixth cohort reflects many of Georgia Tech’s Schools and Colleges.
