Carrie Heitman, associate professor of anthropology, has been selected to participate in the inaugural cohort of the Office of Research and Economic Development’s Research Leaders Program. Among the first of its kind in the nation, this initiative identifies and develops Nebraska’s next generation of research leaders.

These research-active faculty will learn the information, skills and connections needed to assemble and lead large-scale teams in the pursuit of major extramural funding. The program begins Sept. 18 and will conclude in March, when participants will present their personal growth plans to their colleagues and university leaders.
