Launched in 2019, the AOE FLAGship (Faculty/Fellow Leadership and Growth) Program provides cohort members, from various departments and specialties, with a community of educators and a venue to discuss educator and leadership development, promotion and progress, and educational literature. It also allows them to connect participants with mentors or help them find a mentor. The FLAGship program encourages fellows and faculty to apply and participate in the 9-month-long program.
