A pair of BME faculty have been selected to represent Rutgers as Fellows in the Big Ten Academic Alliance. Helen Buettner will serve as a fellow in the Academic Leadership Program. David Shreiber will serve in the Department Executive Officers program. The programs have a common goal of helping 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.
