The Faculty Leadership Development Breakfast Meetings is convened by the Provost, and Adrienne Davis, Vice Provost for Faculty Affairs and Diversity. Consisting predominantly of associate level faculty, the group was formed about in 2012 by Wayne Fields, the Lynne Cooper Harvey Chair Emeritus in English, with the purpose bringing faculty members together who will be a source of campus leadership in the coming years and provide an opportunity for faculty to become better acquainted with one another and the University.  At these session, discussions are focused on the transitions taking place at Washington University and in higher education more broadly.
