ACE Fellows Program Holds Value for Individuals and Nominating Institutions

December 16, 2013

Administrators talking

​Application deadline Jan. 2 for Fellows class of 2014-15

The ACE Fellows Program—at nearly 50 years old the longest running higher education leadership development program in the United States—has multiple benefits for both participants and their nominating institutions.

For the individual who participates in the ACE Fellows Program, the value lies in experiences such as being placed at another institution, developing a mentoring relationship with a college or university executive team led by the president and getting outside one’s professional comfort zone.

For the institution that nominates an ACE Fellow, it is an opportunity to contribute to expanding the pipeline of future higher education leaders while building institutional capacity and reaping the benefit of a Fellow’s newfound knowledge and relationships.

Those interested in becoming a member of the 2014-15 class of the ACE Fellows Program have until Jan. 2 to apply for the yearlong program that prepares senior leadership for the nation's colleges and universities.

Nearly 2,000 higher education leaders have participated in the ACE Fellows Program since its inception, with more than 300 Fellows having served as college or university chief executive officers and more than 1,300 having served as provosts, vice presidents and deans.

Potential participants and their institutions also should keep in mind that the program is flexible. Working with the nominating and host institution mentors, ACE Fellows design an individualized learning contract that articulates their plans for the year, including the choice to spend a full year, a semester, or a schedule of periodic visits away on another campus.

Nominating institutions can apply for limited financial aid opportunities to defray the costs of the program.
