Bloustein faculty to serve on Big Ten Academic Alliance leadership programs

August 11, 2016

Each year, Rutgers deans nominate faculty members of their schools to serve as fellows on two Big Ten Academic Alliance (BTAA, formerly the Committee on Institutional Cooperation, CIC) leadership programs. The BTAA is the academic component of the Big Ten athletic conference. The Chancellor’s Selection Committee chooses five faculty for each BTAA program: the Department Executive Officers (DEO) program and the Academic Leadership Program (ALP). Last year (2015-2016), Bloustein professor Nancy Wolff was selected to be an ALP Fellow.

This year (2016-2017) Bloustein accounts for two of the 10 Rutgers faculty selected – fully 20 percent – a significant achievement: Robert Noland (DEO Fellow) and Clinton Andrews (ALP Fellow). The formal description of the awards is as follows:

Robert B. NolandRobert Noland, Director of the Ph.D. Program, was selected to serve as a fellow representing Rutgers in the Big Ten Academic Alliance Department Executive Officers (DEO) for the 2016-2017 academic year. The program is designed to provide leadership training for faculty who are currently serving as department/program chairs. The goal of the program is to help talented and diverse faculty further develop their ability to be effective academic leaders at their current institutions, or in the future at other major research institutions. Many past participants in the program have gone on to successful careers as Deans, Provosts, Chancellors, and Presidents of major colleges and universities.
