The WKU Staff Council’s Staff Leadership Institute (SLI) Committee has selected the SLI Class of 2019.
Through a competitive process, the committee selected 21 WKU staff members to participate in the eight-month program, which develops leadership skills for a cohort of WKU staff who has demonstrated advancement potential.
The SLI Class of 2019 participants are Dylan Angle, Kayla Bitner, LaTishah Britt, Gary Chandler, Audra Coil, Krista Erickson, Ryanne Gregory, Andria Henry, Emily Hollen, Gabrielle Hunt, Mindy Hutchins, Teresa Jameson, Gina Knutson, Russell Miles, Whitney Nipple, Charles O'Connell, Amy Patterson, Michelle Schneller, Cindy Snazelle, Morgan Terry, and Fallon Willoughby.
“Our goal is to provide a challenging program that provides staff with leadership skills that will help them excel personally and professionally at WKU,” said Cindy Ehresman, program manager of WKU Lifelong Learning. “Since the SLI’s inception in 2003, over 250 WKU staff have participated, and we are proud to partner with the WKU HR and Staff Council to provide a program for emerging leaders within our WKU community.”
Ehresman added that the selection process is competitive, and only 20 to 25 staff members are selected. Participants spend one day each month improving leadership competencies, including communication skills, teambuilding and personal development strategies, as well as knowledge about the WKU community and valuable resources throughout campus.
