Big Ten Academic Alliance ALP Fellows

Big Ten Academic Alliance - Academic Leadership Program Fellows

The Big Ten Academic Alliance Academic Leadership Program (BTAA ALP) offers faculty members the opportunity of a robust, year-long program that explores elements of leadership on college campuses. Participants meet with leaders on their campuses and attend three two-day seminars on leadership topics held on a rotating basis at BTAA campuses.

College deans nominate faculty, and each year the Office of Academic Affairs selects Fellows. Ohio State’s BTAA ALP Fellows for the 2021-22 academic year include:
