Terri Camesano, Professor of Chemical Engineering, has graduated from the inaugural class of the Executive Leadership in Academic Technology and Engineering (ELATE at Drexel™) Fellowship program. The ELATE program provides academic leadership training and support for women through a one-year fellowship program. Fellows received instruction in different dimensions of leadership, such as personal and professional leadership effectiveness to address strategic, operational, and relational challenges; strategic finance and resource management; organizational dynamics; and development of communities of leadership practice that sustain leadership development beyond the fellowship year.
The ELATE program has been specially developed for senior women faculty in computer science and engineering, at the associate or full professor level, who demonstrate the greatest potential for assuming executive leadership positions at academic institutions within the next five years.
As part of the year-long program, Professor Camesano developed an Institutional Action Project entitled Center for Interdisciplinary Research in a Global Context. She developed the concept for a Center that would facilitate international research experiences for graduate students and international collaborations. The Center builds upon international collaborations that Professor Camesano is developing with Politecnico di Milano and Tsinghua University, as well as inclusion of plans for new partnerships and programs.
