For Immediate Release
A West Virginia University at Parkersburg nursing faculty member will represent the college in the 2003 National Institute for Leadership Development's "Leaders" program.
Cheryl B. Robinson, WVU Parkersburg assistant professor of nursing, has been chosen to participate in the NILD "Leaders," an international program for administrators and faculty in higher education.
The year-long program, designed to enhance participants' skills to assume major decision-making roles in their institutions, includes institutional practice in supervisory and human relations skills, planning and budgeting, and organizational transformation as well as discussions with national experts on the issues confronting higher education during the next decade.
During the program, Miss Robinson will be mentored by Alita Sellers, chair of the college's Health Sciences Division, to work on projects that will aid the institution and foster individual professional growth. Miss Robinson will attend a "Leaders" seminar the week of May 17 in San Antonio, TX.
Leaders' participants are chosen for their professional abilities, their interests in advancement of higher education, and the quality of their proposed projects. The NILD is internationally recognized by colleges, universities and businesses for its visionary, holistic programs that produce leaders who effectively challenge assumptions, eliminate barriers and create new pathways to successful solutions.
