The sixth cohort of Georgia Tech’s Emerging Leaders Program has been selected, and it includes two professors in the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering.
Lakshmi Prasad Dasi and May Wang will join 14 other faculty members in an intensive, year-long leadership journey. Wang is a professor and Dasi is professor and associate chair for undergraduate studies in the Coulter Department.
Starting in Fall 2021 and continuing through Spring 2022, the group will participate in a variety of leadership development activities, including a fall weekend workshop, monthly workshops, small-group work, and a 360-degree assessment.
“I’m excited to welcome the sixth cohort of the Emerging Leaders Program,” said Steven W. McLaughlin, provost and executive vice president for Academic Affairs. “The program supports faculty invested in pursuing their leadership journey, which benefits the Institute’s strategic plan goals and the Georgia Tech community as a whole.”
The Emerging Leaders Program started in 2016 and is designed for associate and full professors who have earned tenure. The program is a collaboration between the Office of the Provost, the Office of the Executive Vice President for Research, the Institute for Leadership and Social Impact, and the Office of Graduate Education and Faculty Development.
