Applications for Vanderbilt Leadership Enrichment program accepted through July 9

Applications are now being accepted for the Vanderbilt Leadership Enrichment program. VLE is designed to develop key leadership skills and competencies for staff who are managers or operational leaders demonstrating high potential, and whose leadership position is between frontline supervisor and director.

This university-wide program consists of eight sessions offered monthly from September through April. The program aims to help participants enhance their leadership self-awareness and increase their institutional knowledge. VLE will help participants develop their ability to work effectively with a team, lead during times of change, manage both complex and simple projects, deal with conflict, and set departmental goals and direction.

VLE session topics include:

  • Overviews of higher education and Vanderbilt University
  • Self-awareness
  • Leadership identity development
  • Personal storytelling and branding
  • Presentation skills
  • Facilitation and effective meeting design
  • Employee engagement
  • Building team effectiveness
  • Coaching and effective feedback
  • Well-being in the workplace
  • Inclusive leadership

Leaders interested in VLE should apply online by Friday, July 9, at 5 p.m. CT. If applying for the first time, please complete the application form. For candidates who have applied before, please complete the reapplication form.

The health and safety of the Vanderbilt community is a top priority. In adherence to Return to Campus guidelines, a hybrid VLE experience—including in-person and virtual participation—is anticipated for the upcoming academic year. Learn more about the university’s Return to Campus guidelines.
