Twenty-four individuals have been selected for the upcoming WKU Staff Leadership Institute (SLI) and met for the first time on September 28.

SLI is offered through a partnership between WKU Human Resources, WKU Staff Senate, and WKU Continuing & Professional Development. It is designed to develop leadership skills for WKU staff who have demonstrated advancement potential.
“We are proud to offer a unique and collaborative program that explores leadership development in the context of higher education,” said Andrea Sherrill, WKU AVP/Chief Human Resources Officer. “Participants leave with stronger campus connections and a better understanding of resources available to them at WKU, which benefits all staff employees, regardless of position.”
Participants will spend nine days over the next seven months improving leadership competencies including communication skills, teambuilding, and personal development strategies, as well as gaining knowledge about valuable resources throughout campus and the WKU community.
“We are excited to partner with WKU Human Resources and WKU Staff Senate to provide personal and professional development for WKU staff,” said April McCauley, program coordinator. “We look forward to seeing the impact that the program has on the new cohort and the impact that this cohort will have on the WKU community.”
