​Senior leaders in higher education who are looking for a flexible, rewarding and transformative professional development experience can now apply to join the 2015-16 class of the ACE Fellows Program

The premier program, which has served nearly 2,000 vice presidents, deans, department chairs and faculty leaders, will mark its 50th anniversary in 2015.

ACE Fellows have the unique opportunity to spend an extended period of time on another campus, gaining valuable leadership experience while working directly with its president and senior team. They also:

  • Observe and participate in key meetings and events, and carry out special projects and assignments while under the mentorship of a team of experienced campus or system leaders.
  • Participate in three multi-day seminars, engage in team-based case studies, visit other campuses and attend national meetings.
  • Develop a network of higher education leaders across the U.S. and abroad.

Applications and/or nominations for the 2015-16 class are due by Nov. 3.
