On behalf of the Office of the Provost and the Dean of the Faculty, we write to invite you to a Faculty Leadership Development Workshop on August 7, 2014.  In this workshop a leading academic consulting group, Crystal Clear Consulting, will lead us through an array of critical leadership and management topics, which we hope will provide useful tools and resources to help each of us develop more effective approaches to support our work in our respective departments and at Brown more broadly. The workshop is open to faculty members at all career stages. 

Please contact Associate Provost Liza Cariaga-Lo at for any questions.
