LIMA — Five faculty and staff members at The Ohio State University at Lima have completed the Dean’s Leadership Academy and its two-year schedule of activities.

“The faculty and staff of Ohio State Lima have a tremendous amount of talent that we would like to leverage and nurture,” said Charlene D. Gilbert, Ohio State Lima dean and director. “The talent that we need to grow and expand the campus can be found in all ranks of the faculty and staff. I look forward to continuing to work with the fellows as they take the next step in developing projects that move the campus into the next decade and beyond.”

The Dean’s Leadership Academy is a leadership development program for faculty and staff at Ohio State Lima designed to develop a pool of future leaders who could potentially serve in key roles throughout the campus. The Academy includes skill-building workshops, group discussions, and conversations on key leadership issues facing higher education in the 21st century.

• Margaret Anich, lecturer in Theatre

• David Hartwig, lecturer in English

• Meredith Kincaid, coordinator of Student Engagement

• Temple Patton, admissions counselor

• Cosmin Roman, associate professor of Mathematics.

Two of the participants, Anich and Roman, have been selected to serve as Fellows in the Office of the Dean for the Spring Semester 2017. Anich and Roman will each develop special projects to work on over the next several months that focus on advancing campus-wide priorities.
