CAMLS offers Leadership Academy Scholarship

Nearly two decades ago, Harlan Cleveland wrote that a holistic approach of integrative thinking across disciplines was critical to solving the problems of any community and leading it into the future. This holistic vision can be embraced at The Levin College of Urban Affairs at Cleveland State University's Leadership Academy. The Academy offers leadership training in an interdisciplinary environment by bringing together policy makers, elected officials, senior administrators and community leaders to explore a multi-dimensional model of leadership.

For a number of years, CAMLS has awarded a $1,450 scholarship toward the payment of the $2,900 tuition. A CAMLS member librarian has participated in this Leadership Academy for nine of the past twelve years. Past participants include:

Cynthia Glunt Bailie, Foundation Center - Cleveland
Sue Berlin, Hawken School
Joan Clark, Cleveland Public Library
Sari Feldman, Cleveland Public Library
Ernestine L. Hawkins, East Cleveland Public Library
Edrice Ivory, Shaker Heights Public Library
Hannelore Rader, Cleveland State University
Gregory Reese, East Cleveland Public Library
Carlos Torres, Cleveland Public Library
Kenneth Warren, Lakewood Public Library

The next session of the Leadership Academy runs from mid-November of 2002 through mid-June of 2003. Most of the sessions are scheduled on Fridays (8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.) and Saturdays (8:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon) and two overnight sessions.

If you would like to nominate a senior administrator at your library for this scholarship, contact CAMLS Executive Director Mike Snyder by Friday, August 2.

The CAMLS Board of Trustees will select one person among those nominated at its meeting on Wednesday, August 21.
