The Susan Vogt Leadership Fellows Program September — May
The Susan Vogt Leadership Fellows Program honors the remarkable work and spirit of Susan Vogt, Vice President of Finance and Treasurer at Wellesley College from 2000 to 2003. The Fellowship carries on her legacy by connecting, developing, and supporting emerging leaders within the schools of The Boston Consortium. The Fellowship seeks to increase awareness of the Consortium’s values and activities at the grassroots level, connect and engage practitioners in meaningful projects, and foster collaboration and camaraderie in the next generation of leaders.

Vogt Fellows will have excellent opportunities for development and networking. They will be able to develop their leadership, and reflection skills through self-assessment and a collaborative final project. Along the way, they will build a peer-advising and coaching network that can last well beyond the Fellowship year. Fellows will develop personal learning plans to guide them and will avail themselves of Fellowship sponsors who will support them in accomplishing their goals. To further their development, each Fellow will be paired with an executive coach.
Colleges and Universities will enjoy numerous benefits from their participation in the Vogt Leadership Fellows Program, including the ability to:
All member schools are encouraged to participate in the Fellowship. Each Consortium school may sponsor two Fellows. Sponsoring institutions pledge to support their candidate’s full participation in the yearlong program by providing release time (approximately two days each month) and normal salary. The institution will also pay a tuition fee of $1,500 per fellow.
Candidates should demonstrate a deep commitment to higher education, their institution, and The Boston Consortium. They should have a strong interest in their personal and professional development and in the development of others. Candidates should be capable of guiding transformative change within their institution.
