Rod Hill Named ACE Fellow

Thursday, April 1 2010

Rod Hill, associate professor of physiology and secretary of the faculty, has been named an American Council on Education Fellow for 2010-11. The prestigious fellows program, founded in 1965, identifies and prepares promising senior faculty and administrators for responsible university administrative roles. Forty-six fellows, nominated by the presidents or chancellors of their institutions, were selected this year following a rigorous application process. Each ACE Fellow will focus on an issue of concern to the nominating institution while spending time working with a college or university president and other senior officers at a host institution. The ACE Fellows Program combines retreats, interactive learning opportunities, campus visits and placement at another higher education institution to condense years of on-the-job experience and skills development into a single semester or year. The Fellows are included in the highest level of decision making while participating in administrative activities and learning about an issue to benefit their home institutions; Hill's work and learning will benefit the University of Idaho.
