Applicants sought for ACE Fellows Program
The Office of the Provost is encouraging faculty to apply for the 2014-15 class of the American Council on Education (ACE) Fellows Program.
ACE offers faculty members with a record of demonstrated leadership an opportunity to develop a broader understanding of higher education through observing college and university presidents and other senior administrators.
The program combines placement at another higher education institution with retreats, interactive learning opportunities and campus visits to condense years of on-the-job experience and skills development into a single year. The placement at a host institution can take three forms: yearlong placement, semester-long placement or periodic visits to another institution.
Fellows are required to attend three seminars -- an opening seminar in August 2014, a mid-year seminar in January 2015 and a closing seminar in June 2015 at various locations throughout the United States. These are weeklong sessions that address critical leadership issues in higher education.
Additional details about the program are available at www.acenet.edu/leadership/programs/Pages/ACE-Fellows-Program.aspx.Those who are interested and meet the qualifications of the program should contact Annie Jarrard in the Office of the Provost at firstname.lastname@example.org to make an appointment for further information. Interest should be indicated by Monday (Oct. 14). The deadline for application submission is Nov. 1.
