Application deadline for UF Academy is this Friday

The UF Academy for Emerging Leaders will offer its program virtually for the 2020-21 academic year. Designed for emerging leaders at UF, the nine-month program offers an immersion in the culture and organizational structure of our institution.

Kevin Otto, professor and senior associate chair of the J. Crayton Pruitt Family Department of Biomedical Engineering, participated in the 2019-20 UF Academy class. Otto believes the individual development gained through the UF Academy helps lay the foundation for the future university administration as UF continues on its rise to national and international preeminence.

“The integrated approach to management training, UF institutional structure training, interviewing UF leadership, visiting with state and local leaders in Tallahassee, and self-assessment provide a broad experiential learning opportunity to develop UF-specific leadership skills,” said Otto.
