Tuesday, June 11, 2013

LAWRENCE — Ten University of Kansas faculty members have been named senior administrative fellows for 2013-2014.  

Fellows are selected annually from nominations and applications submitted during the spring semester from across campus. Fellows learn more about senior administration in higher education by meeting with senior administrators, visiting administrative units across campus, discussing national trends in academia and developing their leadership skills. The program has been in place for more than 20 years and is directed by Mary Lee Hummert, vice provost for faculty development, with the assistance of Jenny Mehmedovic, assistant to the provost. 

The new class of fellows is: 

  • William Elliott, associate professor, School of Social Welfare 
  • Judith Emde, librarian and assistant dean, KU Libraries 
  • Michael Engel, professor, ecology & evolutionary biology, College of Liberal Arts & Sciences
  • Mechele Leon, associate professor and chair, theatre, College of Liberal Arts & Sciences 
  • Lumen Mulligan, professor, School of Law 
  • Scott Reinardy, associate professor, School of Journalism 
  • Susan Scholz, professor, School of Business 
  • Joan Sereno, professor, linguistics, College of Liberal Arts & Sciences 
  • Kelli Thomas, associate professor, curriculum & teaching, School of Education
  • Z.J. Wang, Spahr professor and chair, aerospace engineering, School of Engineering.

All tenured faculty members at KU are eligible to apply. Requests for nominations and application instructions for the 2014-2015 senior administrative fellows will occur in April 2014.
