Fourteen individuals representing Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) across the country have been selected to participate in the Partners for Recovery (PFR)/Addiction Technology Transfer Center (ATTC) Leadership Institute.
Hosted by the ATTC National Office, this Institute is a unique leadership preparation program targeted specifically for HBCU junior faculty members who have taught, integrated or infused substance use disorders and/or mental health in their teaching load. The Institute’s purpose is to enhance the knowledge of a diverse group of promising individuals at an optimal point in their career. The program is designed to help participants prepare for greater responsibility, contribute more to their respective HBCU institution, and ultimately, the addictions treatment and recovery services field. The Leadership Institute is supported by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA) Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT).
The six-month program begins in August and provides a combination of in-depth assessments, traditional training seminars, distance education and field experience. Participants will be “immersed” in guided personal assessment and skill development activities and provided the conceptual framework for understanding leadership theory and practice. These individuals are also matched with a mentor who will offer guidance based on their protégé’s needs and interests. Mentoring is a powerful form of human development and a vital component of the ATTC Leadership Institute.
