Working Group on Leadership
The Working Group on Leadership is a new interdisciplinary faculty working group on leadership, created spring 2012, which is bringing together U.Va.'s many existing leadership programs and initiatives. The group is co-chaired by Eric Patashnik, a professor of politics and public policy, and Tom Bateman, Bank of America Professor in the McIntire School of Commerce. The group currently has over 30 faculty members representing eight of U.Va.'s 11 schools, along with the Miller Center and the Sorensen Institute. The group will map current threads of teaching and research, identify best practices in leadership education and host forums and guest speakers
"Leadership is in U.Va.'s DNA" and is already addressed and studied in a variety of contexts across Grounds – from education, nursing and business leadership to the study and training of state and local elected leaders by the Sorensen Institute, to the Miller Center's renowned study of the American presidency. With so many different parts of the University each looking at leadership in a slightly different context, U.Va. has enormous potential – and a comparative advantage – for furthering research on the context of leadership.
