2020-21 Administrative Fellows Program now open for applications

October 21, 2019

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Applications are now being accepted for Penn State's Administrative Fellows Program for 2020-21. The program offers Penn State faculty and staff, who hold a full-time standing appointment or a fixed-term appointment with at least five years of service, the opportunity to work with senior University officers and gain insight pertaining to the challenges of leadership in the academic community.

The program provides the chance for participants to strengthen their administrative talents and qualifications by working with a Penn State administrator in a mentoring relationship. Fellows increase their understanding of the contexts within which decisions are made and gain an enhanced understanding of the various units across the University.

Mentors for the 2020-21 academic year will be Nicholas Jones, executive vice president and provost; Madlyn Hanes, vice president for Commonwealth Campuses and executive chancellor; and Tracey Huston, vice president for Outreach. The program begins in early August and ends the following July.

An informational meeting has been scheduled from 9 to 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, Nov. 13, in the Poole Conference Room, 201 Old Main. The meeting is for those interested in the program and is designed to allow past fellows to field questions from prospective fellows.

If you are interested in attending, RSVP to Wendy Blumenthal on or before Monday, Nov. 11, by email at wjy100@psu.edu or call 814‑863-7494.

More information about the program may be found on the web site for the Office of the Vice Provost for Faculty Affairs at https://www.vpfa.psu.edu/administrative-fellows/.
