Thompson selected as BTAA-ALP fellow

Katrina Daly ThompsonProfessor Katrina Daly Thompson has been selected by the Provost’s office as a fellow for the 2019- 2020 Big Ten Academic Alliance-Academic Leadership Program (BTAA-ALP). As an ALP fellow, Thompson will be part of a small cohort of select campus leaders who, over the course of the academic year, will engage in a variety of activities and experiences to explore issues of academic leadership and personal leadership approaches. Fellows will attend three Big Ten seminars at other universities, supplemented and enriched by a UW-Madison program in which fellows will meet with campus and community leaders to discuss leadership paths and engage in conversations about trends in and issues facing higher education.

Through this program, Thompson hopes to improve her skills as an administrator, improve departmental climate, communicate and collaborate better with administration beyond the department, and provide greater support and mentorship to junior faculty, particular women and colleagues of color.
