Program for Preparing Early Leaders
PROPEL is a collaborative project of the University of Wollongong Social Innovation Network. The project will develop and implement a one-year intensive leadership program for early career academics which will immediately start to train future academic leaders, locally and nationally, and will result in a model transferable to other institutions.
PROPEL’s major focus will be on breaking down the borders between disciplines and closing the gap between learning, teaching and research. Collaboration and interdisciplinarity will be taught and demonstrated to program participants, who will work together with peers and academic leaders across all faculties and disciplines as they complete the six elements of the program. Participants will develop their leadership skills more successfully through this process than they ever could in a discipline-specific environment.
