Nancy Hoover Awarded Frye Leadership Institute Scholarship

University Librarian Nancy Hoover was accepted into the Frye Leadership Institute and awarded a full scholarship. The institute, co-sponsored by the Council on Library and Information Resources and EDUCAUSE, will be held in Washington, DC in June 2012.

As a participant, Hoover will collaborate with other thought leaders, discussing issues facing higher education such as new sources of competition, use of technology to support effective teaching and learning, and changing modes of scholarly communications.

About the 2012 Frye Leadership Institute

Since the inception of Frye, key higher education issues have included new sources of competition, use of technology to support effective teaching and learning, distance learning, changing modes of scholarly communications, an increasing focus on students and, fundamentally, a transformation in the qualities necessary for leadership in today's increasingly ambiguous and rapidly-changing environment.

Together with the deans and other thought leaders from the community, fellows in the 2012 institute will contemplate the current and future impact of these issues in the higher education community. They will discuss numerous approaches to addressing these issues, including ideas for collaboration within and across departments, institutions, and local or regional boundaries; the conceptualization of blended positions and organizations; and the importance of mentorship to the community.
