SILS doctoral student Amanda Click has been selected as one of the Leadership Development Scholars for the 2013-2014 academic year in the first cohort offered by the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Graduate School.
Click’s proposal was to develop a panel discussion with prominent leaders in library sciences to foster leadership development. The proposals were evaluated on “several factors including the overall quality of the proposed intervention, feasibility, implementation plan, potential impact on students, evaluation plan, quality of writing, and description of the impact on your own professional development.”
She will participate in a workshop with the other eight students selected for this honor on January 7th 2014. “The workshop will include: sharing your project with other scholars in the program, developing a personal leadership development plan, a session on program evaluation and a session on Emotional Intelligence.”
According to the Web site, “the goal of the Leadership Development Scholars Program is to provide graduate and professional students with authentic experiences that will help build their leadership skills. The main focus of this opportunity is to have students develop a specific project that will contribute to the professional development of their peers.”
