Women's Leadership Faculty Fellows Program

Georgia College's Women's Leadership Faculty Fellows Program was established in 2019 to provide a carefully selected group of current faculty with dedicated time to develop and hone leadership skills and gain a deeper understanding of the challenges and opportunities confronting higher education, specifically with a focus on issues women face in academic administration.

This year’s program will begin in Fall 2020 and will run through May 2021. Fellows will attend monthly meetings where they will learn from senior administrators on campus as well as visiting speakers.

The Women’s Leadership Faculty Fellows Program is administered by the Office of Academic Affairs and facilitated by Dr. Holley Roberts, Interim Associate Provost and Director of The Graduate School and Dr. Chavonda Mills, Department Chair, Chemistry, Physics and Astronomy.

Questions about the program may be directed to Drs. Roberts or Mills at holley.roberts@gcsu.edu or chavonda.mills@gcsu.edu.
