TU provost selected to participate in Executive Leadership Academy | Events
THOMAS COUNTY, GA - News release from Thomas University
Dr. Ann Landis, Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs at Thomas University, has been selected to participate in the 2012-2013 Executive Leadership Academy.
Only 20 senior-level higher education administrators are selected nationwide by the Council of Independent Colleges and the American Academic Leadership Institute to participate in the year-long Executive Leadership Academy.
Individuals chosen for the program are vice presidents or cabinet officers in higher education who aspire to become president of an independent college or university.
As a participant, Dr. Landis will attend two seminars and ongoing webinars, participate in a mentoring program, develop experiential learning projects focused on specific areas of presidential responsibility, and complete a series of readings and case studies.
“The academy will help prepare CAOs to serve as effective college presidents,” said Richard Ekman, President of the Council of Independent Colleges.
“Competition for available places in the Academy was intense, and the review committee found the nomination materials to be most impressive. They (and I) believe that Dr. Landis has the potential for highly effective leadership as a college or university president.”
A resident of Tallahassee, Dr. Landis became Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs at Thomas University in 2006 after serving in several other academic capacities at TU.
Beginning her career at TU as an adjunct instructor for English Composition courses, Landis was hired as full-time Assistant Professor of English in 1998.
She has since served as Division Chair, Associate Dean, and Dean of Arts and Sciences. Prior to coming to TU, she taught English at the secondary level in Virginia, and taught English and Humanities at Bluffton University in Ohio and at Florida State University.
“The Executive Leadership Academy is one of the Council of Independent Colleges most prestigious programs,” said Dr. Gary Bonvillian, President of Thomas University. “I am pleased that Dr. Landis has been accepted amongst other key leaders in the Academy to participate in the upcoming program.”
