Applications for the 2012-2013 Endowed Chairs for Learning Leadership program are now being accepted. This program recognizes and promotes academic excellence at the college through honoring outstanding members of Valencia’s teaching faculty. In contrast to endowed chair programs at four-year institutions that aim to attract preeminent researchers, this program recognizes and supports Valencia faculty by providing resources needed for the advancement of instruction.
The two categories of Learning Leadership Chairs include:
- Category I: Distinguished Professors – chairs are awarded to faculty to fund a proposed learning experience that supports the college’s mission, vision, and values and has a connection to student learning.
- Category II: Distinguished Scholars – chairs are awarded to faculty to fund projects that enhance learning-centered activities and/or foster professional development departmentally, college wide, within a discipline, or within the Central Florida community.
Eligibility is confined to fully tenured faculty members who are full members of the Faculty Association (according to the Faculty Association Constitution) for the previous two semesters and will be for the year of the endowed chair. Applicants will be evaluated and selected for this program based on their teaching excellence and proposed learning experience.
