HERS 1993-Application March 5

The Eighteenth Annual Summer Institute for Women in Higher Education Administration (HERS) will be held Sunday, June 27 - Friday, July 23, 1993. HERS is a residential program on the Bryn Mawr College campus offering women faculty and administrators intensive training in educational administration. The curriculum prepares participants to work with issues currently facing higher education, with emphasis on the growing diversity of the student body and the work force.

The program accepts women who are actively seeking increased administrative responsibilities and provides training in the management and governance of institutions of higher education, with special attention to accounting and budgeting, strategic planning, information technology, decision making processes, and policy implementation. One objective of the Summer Institute is to foster a network of peers and mentors who provide information, resources, contacts, and support for one another.

There are two ways for women at Penn to apply to the HERS Summer Institute. First, the University will sponsor two participants chosen in a campus-wide selection process. Second, individuals may be sponsored by their own deans or departments. The deadline for application through the University selection process is Friday, March 5th. For more information about the Summer Institute and an application, please contact Debra Fickler at Ext. 8-7660 or you can send an e-mail message to fickler@A1.QUAKER.
