Dr. Russell Frohardt, Associate Professor and Chair of Psychology at St. Edward's University, will discuss his experiences in the 2010-2011 ACE Fellows program class. The ACE Fellows program is a highly selective internship for mid-career academics that are seeking training in administration. He was hosted by Vassar College in the fall and returned to continue the fellowship and resume his duties at St. Edward’s last spring. Dr. Frohardt will share his perspectives on the fellowship experience and lessons learned from mentoring, leadership training, reviewing relevant literature, site visits to several other institutions and work on specific fellowship projects. There will be an open discussion of some of the ethical challenges of training for administration and some of the challenges facing higher education in the future.
RSVP for lunch to Kate Rosati. This workshop is co-sponsored with the Center for Teaching Excellence.
