The John Marshall Leadership Fellows Program is conducted annually during the spring term under the sponsorship of the university’s Center for Teaching and Learning.

Applications are accepted each fall for spring cohorts. Full-time tenured or probationary faculty and full-time classified or non-classified staff with leadership aspirations and a commitment to Marshall University are eligible to participate.

Applicants must have the endorsement of their chair/direct supervisor and dean/vice-president. The final selection of the cohort will be made by the senior administrators of the fellows program.

The broad aims of the John Marshall Leadership Fellows Program at Marshall University are to:

  • Identify faculty, staff and administrators who have leadership potential;
  • Provide information, training and development activities related to institutional processes, policies and decision-making pathways;
  • Build participants’ competence through leadership theory and research; and
  • Apply leadership principles to a timely problem-solving project, addressing an issue of significance to the university.
