Morris named AASCU emerging leader

Kristine Morris (Nursing, Denton) has been named to American Association of State Colleges and Universities 2022 Emerging Leaders Program. Morris is among a new cohort of 36 higher education professionals named to AASCU’s premier leadership development program.

The Emerging Leaders Program was created in 2015 to prepare early- to mid-career academic and administrative emerging leaders who aspire to advance to administrative roles with greater responsibility and oversight.

The 2022 cohort will cover topics such as equity and social justice leadership, navigating and leading through change, finance and administration, leading as a provost, and more. The group will meet for an in-person retreat, monthly virtual workshops, and small-group sessions for reflection and study of promising practices. Each member of the cohort also will demonstrate their leadership skills to their campus community by leading an on-campus project or initiative with the support of their president/chancellor or cabinet-level administrator.
