BPI Scholars Applications Due June 5th

BPI is excited to be accepting applications for its third BPI Scholars class, which will start in September.  BPI Scholars is a one-year professional development program for high-performing, early and mid-career Emory staff.  Sponsored by their home unit, Scholars learn, develop, and apply project management, communication, analytical, and leadership skills.  For their application, candidates must identify a practice improvement opportunity in their current units. This improvement project becomes the focus of their work as a Scholar.

During the year-long program, Scholars remain in their current roles, with participation in the program representing a commitment to benefit both themselves and their home units.  The estimated time required of each Scholar for the duration of the program is four to eight hours per week, which will vary by week, above and beyond their regular job duties.  In addition to working on their improvement projects, Scholars participate in coursework and attend a series of talks by Emory leadership on university management topics.

The inaugural Scholars class, which began in January 2014, had six participants, including Emily Porter, who is the Digital Library Program Coordinator in University Libraries, Library & IT Services.  Ms. Porter had this to say about her Scholars experience:

“My experience in the BPI Scholars Program was phenomenal. The expertise and dedication of the instructors, the opportunity to learn directly from campus leaders, and the energy and support of peer participants from across campus really motivated me to tackle - and complete a complex process improvement project.”

Program information, including application and sponsorship forms, can be found at:  Completed applications and sponsorship statements for the September-start class are due June 5, 2015.
