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 from TBC’s member institutions. 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 have excellent opportunities for development and networking. They develop their leadership and reflection skills through self-assessment and a change project. Fellows initiate this year-long project to apply their leadership learning to a real problem within their institutions. Along the way, they build a peer-advising and coaching network that can last well beyond the Fellowship year. Fellows develop personal learning plans to guide them and engage with their Fellowship sponsors who support them in accomplishing their goals. To further their development, each Fellow has the opportunity to be paired with a leadership coach or mentor from within the Vogt alumni network.
