The Arts and Science Emerging Leaders Academy (ASELA) is a year-long program aimed at developing the leadership potential of faculty in NYU Arts and Science. This intensive program develops individual leadership goals as well as skills and capacity for decision making, community building, program development and management. Participants think through effective strategies for moving programs and people forward. They reflect on and develop strategies for meeting their next big challenge. And they make connections across Arts and Science.
