HERS Briefing: February 9

The University will sponsor the nominations of two women to the 1998 Summer Institute for Women in Higher Education Administration, sponsored by Bryn Mawr College and Higher Education Resources (HERS) Mid-Atlantic. If accepted, the University will fund their participation in the residential program, which runs June 28 to July 24 on the Bryn Mawr campus.

Penn has sent over 50 women to HERS since its founding 23 years ago-faculty and administrators of various ranks, disciplines and professions, from schools and centers throughout the University. As in the past, a review committee of HERS alumnae and Penn faculty will select the two 1998 nominees.

The Institute was established to improve the status of women in middle and executive levels of higher education administration. Its curriculum focuses on four areas: academic environment, external environment, institution environment and professional development. Specific coursework includes strategic planning, budgeting and accounting, financing higher education, and leadership skills, to name only a few areas.

The faculty is comprised of women and men from government, foundations, professional associations, as well as many sectors of North American higher education.

The applications deadline is March 9, but a preliminary briefing is scheduled for February 9, from 4 to 5:30 p.m. at the Faculty Club.
