The CIC, an academic consortium of Big Ten universities and the University of Chicago, established the Academic Leadership Program in 1989 to help selected faculty on its member campuses to develop their leadership and managerial skills. Each year on a rotating basis, CIC member institutions host a series of three two-day seminars on the themes of leadership and human resources, long-range planning and budgeting, and motivating change at public research universities.

This year's fellows will attend seminars at Michigan State University, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and Purdue University. Assistant Vice Provost Glenda Haskell is the program's institutional liaison for U-M.
