Harris and Pearson receive FORWARD Leadership Development Awards
Marion Harris, professor of entomology, and Judy Pearson, professor of communication, have been awarded the first FORWARD Leadership Development grants. FORWARD’s Leadership Development program promotes the advancement of talented, tenured women faculty by providing financial support to attend leadership training. The Leadership Development program is open to tenured women faculty with the rank of associate professor or professor.
Harris will use the funds to attend LEAD21, a training program that develops leaders in land-grant institutions and their strategic partners who link research, academics and Extension in order to lead more effectively in an increasingly complex environment.
Pearson will use the funds to attend Greenleaf Center’s annual Conference on Servant Leadership.
