March 05, 2015

MISSOULA – University of Montana Associate Professor Amy Glaspey has been selected as part of an elite group to participate in the Council of Academic Programs in Communication Sciences and Disorders 2015 Leadership Academy.

The inaugural 2015 CAPCSD Leadership Academy, “Best Practices in Academic Leadership,” will be held Tuesday and Wednesday, April 14-15, in Newport Beach, California. Glaspey will join 19 other participants from around the country. 

“We could not be more excited for Dr. Glaspey,” said Roberta Evans, dean of the Phyllis J. Washington College of Education and Human Sciences. “This is a wonderful opportunity for her, the Department of Communicative Sciences and Disorders, and the College of Education and Human Sciences.”

The academy will be led by Jeffrey Buller, dean of Florida Atlantic University’s Wilkes Honors College. Topics to be covered include foundations of leadership; time management; stress management; collegiality and team building; best practices in faculty evaluation, mentoring and coaching; leading change; and goal setting/planning for the future.

Part of the council’s mission is to provide visionary leadership for academic programs in communication sciences and disorders and to promote the professional development of its constituents. CAPCSD has initiated the 2015 Leadership Academy to help individuals considering academic leadership positions, or who are newly engaged in academic leadership, develop their knowledge and skills in the area of leadership.

“We are thrilled to see that Amy’s superb leadership and hard work are being recognized and look forward to learning from her as she comes back with new and innovative techniques for department management,” Evans said.
