Aspen Announces Inaugural Fellowship Leaders

The Aspen Institute, an education and policy studies organization, announced today 40 community college leaders as part of the inaugural Aspen Presidential Fellowship.

The fellowship is a highly selective yearlong program to prepare people aspiring to or recently appointed to a community college presidency. The fellows will participate in a series of seminars and receive mentorship through a collaboration with Stanford University's faculty and top community college leaders.

More than half of the fellows are working at community colleges that are partnered with Achieving the Dream, about 60 percent of the class are women and about 30 percent are black or Latino.

The first class will begin in July, and they're expected to complete the program by next spring. Applications for the second class will be available Sept. 30.
