We are thrilled to announce MSU’s cohort of fellows in the 2018-19 Big Ten Academic Alliance Academic Leadership Program (BTAA-ALP)!  They are:

  • Kendra Spence Cheruvelil – Professor of Fisheries & Wildlife and Associate Dean in Lyman Briggs College
  • Cara Cilano –Professor and Chair of English
  • Pero Dagbovie – Professor of History and Associate Dean in the Graduate School
  • Ashley Green – Assistant Dean in International Studies & Programs
  • John Papapolymerou –Professor and Chair of Electrical & Computer Engineering

Established in 1989, the ALP has trained nearly 1000 Fellows, many of whom have gone on to serve as college presidents, provosts, and deans.  This group will be welcomed into the program with a dinner at the Kellogg Center on April 25th, which also will honor the outgoing, 2017-18 cohort.  As is our tradition, the ALP Fellows will meet with leaders on our campus throughout the next academic year, and will join their counterparts from the other Big Ten campuses at the University of Minnesota (October, 2018), Purdue (February, 2018), and University of Illinois (April, 2019).

Congratulations to each of this year’s Fellows!
