LAWRENCE — Four University of Kansas faculty members in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences have been named senior administrative fellows for 2014-2015.
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 will be directed by Marta Caminero-Santangelo, acting vice provost for faculty development, with the assistance of Jenny Mehmedovic, executive assistant to the vice provost for faculty development.
The new class of fellows in the College:
• Paul Atchley, professor and associate chair, psychology, College of Liberal Arts & Sciences
• Jennifer Hamer, professor, American Studies and African and African-American Studies, College of Liberal Arts & Sciences
• Jorge Perez, associate professor and associate chair, Spanish and Portuguese, College of Liberal Arts & Sciences
• Joy Ward, associate professor, ecology and evolutionary biology, College of Liberal Arts & Sciences
All tenured faculty members at KU are eligible to apply. Requests for nominations and application instructions for the 2015-2016 senior administrative fellows will occur in April 2015.
