Birth of Broadening Leadership

The Broadening Leadership program was first created in 1999 under the direction of Chancellor F.C. Richardson.  At the time, it supported the fifth goal of the IU Southeast Strategic Plan; "Build and sustain a strong sense of campus community," in “Meeting the Future with Excellence: Strategic Directions for Indiana University Southeast.  The Broadening Leadership program brought 12 - 14 employees together on an annual basis for five one-day seminars to learn about leadership in higher education.  The theory behind the program was to develop leadership skills and to open new communication lines among employees in all segments in order to strengthen the campuses core foundation; its human resources.  It was a program for faculty and staff to participate in leadership education and training. 

The program was run via volunteer co-coordinators from year-to-year. Chancellor Patterson-Randles assigned Mike Kerstiens to re-write the program statement, restructure the program, and permanently chair the Broadening Leadership program along with Jennifer Hershfield, an administrative assistant to the vice chancellor for Administration & Finance.  In 2013, after the departure of Mike Kerstiens from the IU Southeast campus, Ron Severtis, Institutional Effectiveness and BLI graduate, became the new dedicated co-coordinator, along with Jennifer Hershfield.
