PRIORITY 3 - LEADERSHIP CULTIVATION
GOAL: Support SSU faculty and staff in their professional development and RSCA so they can be leaders in the community and the disciplines.
|Develop and implement sustainable professional development and RSCA support plans.|
|Create mechanisms for faculty to share their research with local and global communities on a broader scale. This could include, for example, an institutional repository, an Open Access policy/program, more community-based lectures or programming.|
|Encourage academic departments to examine how they evaluate and/or support emerging forms of community- and web-based scholarship and to recognize scholarship and research output with an impact beyond the academic sphere (e.g., open access platforms or that is targeted outside of academic communities)|
GOAL: Amplify integration of leadership into the curriculum and into co-curricular programming to make this a distinctive feature of SSU educational culture.
|Use the service-learning and leadership specific courses at SSU to help create a continuous leadership cultivation opportunity for students at SSU.|
|Make more explicit connections between service and leadership in curricular and co-curricular programming.|
|Identify mechanisms to highlight leadership among current students, faculty, and staff so we can build a broader reputation around SSU as a leadership-driven institution.|
