The American Council on Education has announced IU Assistant Vice President Carolyn Gentle-Genitty has been named a fellow for 2022-23 academic year.
Gentle-Genitty is one of 46 fellows this year, selected following nomination by senior administration of their respective institutions and a rigorous application process,
Established in 1965, the American Council on Education Fellows Program is designed to strengthen institutions and leadership in U.S. higher education by identifying and preparing faculty and staff for senior positions in college and university administration through its distinctive and intensive nominator-driven, cohort-based mentorship model.
The program combines retreats, interactive learning opportunities, visits to campuses and other higher education-related organizations, and placement at another higher education institution to condense years of on-the-job experience and skills development into a single year.
At the conclusion of the fellowship year, fellows return to their home institution with new knowledge and skills that contribute to capacity-building efforts, along with a network of peers across the country and abroad.
