The program requires a minimum time commitment of one full-day workshop every two months and, in between workshops, 2-4 hours of consultation and/or shadowing with a senior level administrator.

BLP Participants

"The BLP program is an excellent program, it gave me the opportunity to meet VPs that I would never have met and it gave me the chance to learn different leadership styles to implement. I have personally grown in the way how I communicate and manage my staff and the incentive it has given me to partake in various committees."

- Judith Wallace, Coordinator, IRM

"The program provided a forum for us to sharpen our vision and values. The Leader meetings gave us the opportunity to observe our Leaders do what they do so well. The information gathered will be most useful as I embark upon and expand in my professional careers. I have strengthened working relationships and built friendships that may have otherwise not been formed."

- Nyasha N. Hinds,
Executive Secretary,
Office of Community Relations

"When I applied for the Broward Leadership Program, I had no idea how much I would take away from it; even when I thought I might be acquainted with the area from which the mentors came, I still learned so much. I had the advantage of not only getting to know new colleagues whom I�d never interacted with before, but also gaining incredible knowledge from my peers."

- Joelle Hutchings, Executive Secretary, Office of the VP & Associate Provost

"The Broward Leadership Program is unique and enlightening, it promotes career growth and builds character. My participation in this program is a lifetime experience which I enjoyed and was happy to be a participant."

- Anand Balroop, Coordinator, Broward Physical Plant

"The Broward Leadership Program focuses on developing the talents and abilities of current FAU staff while providing an invaluable source of wisdom on all aspects that comprise the higher education enterprise."

- Shireen Lalla, Coordinator, Broward Testing and Evaluation
