Nandita Mani, associate University librarian for the health sciences and director of the Health Sciences Library, has been selected as a 2021-22 Leadership Fellow for the Association of Research Libraries.
The ARL Leadership Fellows program, the flagship offering of the ARL Academy, develops and prepares the next generation of senior library and archival leaders. Past Leadership Fellows have emerged as successful leaders in a wide array of roles and settings, including as deans and directors of research libraries and archives and as leaders at all levels in various organizations.
“The Fellows program is an ideal opportunity for me to engage with and learn from transformational leaders who are ready to tackle complex issues facing higher education,” Nandita said. “I am especially looking forward to hearing diverse perspectives on how we can create meaningful change by systemically examining our unique role within higher education; having the opportunity to collaborate and innovate alongside my cohort is pretty exciting!”
The 2021-22 cohort of 20 Leadership Fellows brings together an immensely diverse and highly accomplished group of library leaders, representing the broadest range of research institutions and communities in the history of the Leadership Fellows program.
