Call for Applicants: Minnesota Institute for Early Career Librarians from Traditionally Underrepresented Groups
March 4, 2018
New deadline: March 16, 2018.
The University of Minnesota Libraries is pleased to offer the 11th biennial Minnesota Institute for Early Career Librarians from Traditionally Underrepresented Groups.
The Institute focuses on the development of library leaders from diverse backgrounds who are in the first three years of their professional careers. Participants will develop specific leadership abilities proven to be critical for organizational success, including knowledge and skills for successful program leadership and collaboration. The Institute’s curriculum has been reframed for 2018 and will use case studies as a context for leadership and personal exploration.
Once again, Kathryn Deiss and DeEtta Jones will co-lead the Institute. They will be joined by Trevor Dawes (University of Delaware), Harriett Green (University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign), and a number of University of Minnesota leaders.
The Minnesota Institute has over 250 graduates to date, including a notable number of today’s luminaries: ALA Past President Courtney Young (Penn State, Allegheny), ACRL Past President Trevor Dawes (Delaware), and Jody Gray, Director of ALA’s Office for Diversity, Literacy, and Outreach Services. And, of course, ARL’s own Mark Puente is among the exceptional leaders who participated in the Institute!
Program and application details are available at: https://www.lib.umn.edu/sed/institute.
The application deadline is Saturday, March 10, 2018.
