JLID’s purpose is to increase racial, gender and ethnic diversity in administrative and other senior-level positions in journalism and mass communication education. The Institute’s objective is to offer a year-round program to identify, recruit, mentor and train future leaders and administrators. JLID is co-sponsored by AEJMC and the Association of Schools of Journalism and Mass Communication (ASJMC).
Applicants MUST BE an associate or full professor interested in administration. While the program is primarily for those who aspire to be deans, directors or department chairs, it will also identify and accept those who may be prospects for endowed professorships and chairs and other senior faculty positions — important positions in the journalism and mass communication leadership field.
JLID fellows will participate in Institute activities while continuing to work at their home campuses. The Institute program involves four trips during the fellowship year.Print friendly
