ACE Fellows expand leadership training during visit to Ohio State

The Ohio State University hosted more than 30 American Council on Education (ACE) Fellows from the 2021-22 cohort during their five-day closing retreat in Columbus from June 1-5. Since its inception in 1965, the ACE Fellows Program has strengthened institutions in American higher education by identifying and preparing over 2,000 faculty, staff and administrators for senior positions in college and university leadership through its distinctive and intensive, cohort-based mentorship model.

The Fellows time on campus included a reception hosted by the Office of Diversity and Inclusion, a roundtable discussion with university leadership organized by the Office of the Provost and a campus tour organized by the Office of International Affairs.

Executive Director of the Global One Health initiative, Wondwossen Gebreyes, is an ACE Fellow in the 2021-22 cohort.

The program combines retreats, interactive learning opportunities, visits to campuses and other higher education-related organizations, and placement at another higher education institution to condense years of on-the-job experience and skills development into a single year.
