Senior Seminar Nominations
Each spring the Virginia Network places a call for nominations of women from across the Commonwealth to participate in the Senior Leadership Seminar. Women are selected for the Senior Leadership Seminar based on a record of leadership at their home institution and their potential to contribute significantly to higher education. We especially welcome nominations of women of color since we are committed to increasing their representation and involvement in higher education administration. Up to two women can be nominated from each campus.
The Virginia Network is now accepting nominations for the 2022-2023 class of Senior Leadership Seminar. We invite you to nominate up to two women from your campus for participation. Presidents, deans, executive officers, and members of the Virginia Network community, such as Institutional Representatives, executive board members, and past participants of the Senior Leadership Seminar are encouraged to nominate mid- and senior-level women administrators for consideration. We especially welcome nominations of women of color since we are committed to increasing their representation and involvement in higher education administration.
Please contact nominees to confirm their interest in participating and their ability to participate in all three sessions. If more than one nomination is submitted, please prioritize the nominees. Nominations are due May 13, 2022.
Participants are selected based on a record of leadership at their home institution and their potential to contribute significantly to higher education. In addition, preference is given to those nominees whose career goals include advancement in higher education. Individuals selected for participation in the 2022-2023 class of Senior Leadership Seminar will be notified of acceptance by June 10, 2022.
Each session includes an overnight stay with time for travel to and from the session's location. Sessions take place on:
October 13-14, 2022 - James Madison University, Harrisonburg, VA
January 25-26, 2023 - Hilton Richmond Downtown, Richmond, VA
June 8-9, 2023 - William & Mary, Williamsburg, VA
Nominees are required to commit to all three sessions.
