Terri Anne Camesano who serves as Worcester Polytechnic Institute’s (WPI) Dean of Graduate Studies and a professor of chemical engineering has been named to the American Council on Education (ACE) 2022-2023 Class of Fellows, the longest-running leadership development program in the United States. The newly selected class includes 46 Fellows and represents 28 public and 14 private institutions who were chosen following a nomination by the senior administration of their institutions and a rigorous application process.
“I am very grateful that WPI nominated me for the ACE Fellowship. This will allow me to have access to an individualized and highly effective mentoring and professional development, addressing multiple areas of importance to higher education,” said Camesano. “I cannot wait to learn from this experience and to see how I can apply all of my new knowledge directly back to WPI.”
Established in 1965, the ACE Fellows Program is designed to strengthen institutions and leadership in U.S. higher education by identifying and preparing faculty and staff for senior positions in college and university administration through its distinctive and intensive nominator-driven, cohort-based mentorship model. About 2,500 higher education leaders have participated in the ACE Fellows Program over the past five decades, with more than 80 percent of Fellows having gone on to serve as senior leaders of colleges and universities.
