Marie desJardins, computer science and electrical engineering, has been selected as a participant in the American Council on Education’s (ACE) Fellows Program. desJardins was one of just 31 faculty and administrators chosen from across the United States this year.
The ACE Fellows Program is the premier program for “identifying and preparing the next generation of senior leadership for the nation’s colleges and universities.” More than 300 past ACE fellows have served as chief executive officers of colleges or universities and over 1,300 have served as provosts, vice presidents and deans.
During the year-long program, desJardins will work with the president and senior officials at a host institution, while also completing a project of pressing interest to UMBC. Click here to read more about the ACE Fellows Program and here to see the full list of fellows.
