SENCER Leadership Fellows



The Program

Founded in 2008, the SENCER Leadership Fellows program recognizes members of the SENCER community interested in taking on more advanced involvement through formal roles in the project. Leadership Fellows are appointed for 18-month, renewable terms, and work on projects of their own design. Fellows projects have included course design, faculty development, research into student learning, and initiatives to assist other members of the SENCER community in their professional development.

The goals for the Leadership Fellows program are five-fold. We seek to (1) recognize the leadership of those who have made reforms into campus realities, (2) broaden the impact of individual SENCER activities on campus, (3) apply what has been learned to new challenges, (4) create regional and, where desired, issue-specific organizations to nurture the expanding community of practice that SENCER has helped to foster, and (5) plan for sustaining and continually refreshing the SENCER Ideals and national program over the long term.


How to Become a Leadership Fellow

Applications and nominations to the Fellows program are accepted on a rolling basis throughout the year. Applications are reviewed twice each year by the National Fellowship Board (please see sidebar for information on the members), generally in the fall and late spring. Please see the sidebar for upcoming review deadlines.
