The new director of the Bob and Aleicia Woodrick Center for Equity and Inclusion has been accepted into a national leadership development program.
Domingo Hernandez-Gomez will be part of the 2017-18 New Leadership Academy Fellows Program, which is sponsored by the National Forum on Higher Education for the Public Good at the University of Michigan and the American Association of Hispanics in Higher Education.
The program’s goal is to develop leaders to meet the changing demographic, democratic, and discursive foundations of higher education. Participating in the academy is a unique opportunity to learn from experts from across the country, said Hernandez-Gomez, who became head of the Woodrick Center this past fall.
“I hope to deepen my understanding of crucial issues in higher education based on the shared experiences of others in the program,” he said. “But more importantly, I hope this experience will provide a refreshed insight on addressing current and future challenges in a more complex and contested higher education environment.”
