Faculty Leadership Training & Development

Morehouse College is committed to the development of faculty for leadership positions at the College and in the academy. Faculty are encouraged to develop leadership skills to enhance their capacities to lead in the classroom, department, division, and at the institution. Further, as Morehouse develops student servant-leaders, faculty are expected to model and develop servant-leadership through civic engagement and service-learning.

The Periclean Faculty Leaders will champion civic engagement in the classroom, on the campus, and in the community. This program will encourage faculty members in a wide variety of disciplines to create and teach courses that address issues of social concern, enrich curriculum, and enhance student social interest and involvement. Periclean Faculty Leaders will also organize campus-wide activities and/or prepare an academic paper or research project. The 12 faculty who will be selected in 2017 will be the second cohort of this program. 


Faculty will work with the Provost’s Office to ensure nomination and for the submission of applications.

By identifying innovative faculty, supporting their academic and co-curricular work, and encouraging them as campus and national leaders in the field of civic engagement, the PFL Program will foster campus environments where students, faculty, administrators, alumni, and community members are actively engaged. We look forward to working with you on this exciting and important program.

Program Benefits

The Pardee RAND Graduate School's Faculty Leaders Program seeks to build diversity in public policy through strong engagement of faculty leaders across the United States. The program is open to current faculty at U.S. colleges and universities in any discipline who are passionate about leveraging their teaching and research to better their communities and to help usher in the next generation of policy leaders. Fellowships that cover tuition and travel costs will be awarded to up to twelve participants. During the week-long program, you will learn how to:

  • Use your position as a faculty member to bring positive change to your community.
  • Help influence public policy through your research.
  • Enhance your curriculum by linking concepts of public policy analysis to your own discipline.
  • Mentor students who have the passion and potential to become leaders in public policy.
  • Develop a new network of peers, including RAND researchers, in the faculty and policy community.

Pardee RAND is committed to increasing the prevalence of scholars/professionals from underrepresented minorities in all levels of the policymaking process. Faculty serving highly diverse student bodies are encouraged to apply today
