OU professor named 2003-04 ACE Fellow
Oakland University Associate Professor of Political Science Dale Nesbary, Ph.D., of Southfield, has been named an American Council of Education (ACE) Fellow for the 2003-2004 academic year. He is one of just 37 fellows selected this year from among 500 applicants.
Nesbary, who is the director of Oakland’s Master of Public Administration Program in the Department of Political Science, will spend the next academic year working with a college or university president and other senior officers at a host institution.
The ACE Fellows Program, established in 1965, strengthens institutions and leadership in American higher education by identifying and preparing promising young faculty and senior administrators for responsible positions in college and university administration. It is considered the premier higher education leadership development program in the country.
“We are extremely proud of Dr. Nesbary as he accepts this tremendous honor,” said Oakland University’s Interim Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost Virinder Moudgil.
“The fellows program will sharpen and enhance his leadership skills and prepare him to address issues of concern to the higher education community. Dr. Nesbary’s selection by the American Council on Education also demonstrates that Oakland University has some of the brightest and best faculty in the nation.”
Nesbary will be included in the highest level of decision-making while participating in administrative activities and spending either an entire academic year or some other time frame at a host institution. He also will contribute to a leadership team exploring a project, yet to be determined, which will benefit Oakland University.
