ELATE is an intensive full-year, part-time fellowship program modeled on the highly successful ELAM® program for women in medicine, dentistry and public health, and tailored to the needs of faculty women in engineering and technology. Three in-residence sessions of 4-6 days each are used to enhance knowledge and skills in business practices of higher education, project management with diverse stakeholders, and effective communication in a variety of leadership platforms.

ELATE Fellows will:
  • Improve their personal and professional leadership through professional and peer coaching, personality and leadership style inventories, and 360evaluations.
  • Learn, through activities, classroom presentations, and interviews of their own institutional leaders, how to understand and navigate organizational dynamics.
  • Expand their knowledge of strategic finance and resource management at the institutional level through didactic presentations, case studies, and work at their home institutions.
