Director, Institute for Professional Leadership - Applications Remain Open!

Just a reminder that applications are open for the permanent directorship of the Institute for Professional Leadership at The University of Tennessee College of Law.  As many of you know, I have been the Interim Director of this important academic program at UT Law for three years.  It has been a great joy for me to serve, but we are ready now to find a new permanent director for the program.  Applications are being accepted here.  Additional information also is available at the same link.  And here is the general job description:

The University of Tennessee College of Law invites applications for the position of Director of the Institute for Professional Leadership. The Institute for Professional Leadership (IPL) is a unique academic program that focuses on guiding students in identifying and developing their leadership skills and professional values, in conjunction with constructing a successful career plan. The IPL offers a rich selection of courses and programs designed to prepare students to be lawyer leaders within the profession and beyond, promotes active community engagement through pro bono opportunities, and serves as a platform for research and scholarly debate in the leadership field. The Director will provide vision and oversight for the IPL’s existing programs and activities and will be responsible for expanding and enhancing the IPL’s reach and stature. The Director will be an important part of the College of Law’s administrative leadership. The position will report directly to the Dean and work more broadly with the College of Law administration to support high-quality instruction, programming, engagement, and professional leadership development. Additionally, the Director will be a member of the College of Law faculty; the nature of the appointment will depend upon the chosen candidate’s academic and professional experience and credentials.

Of course, let me know if you have questions!  I know the job well . . . .  Please pass this on to others who may be interested.
