Description

Aspen Rising Presidents Fellowship 

The Aspen Rising Presidents Fellowship is developing a cadre of exceptional leaders who can transform community colleges to achieve higher levels of student success while maintaining broad access. Each year, Aspen engages a select group of up to 40 fellows for this intensive, one-year, applied executive leadership program, delivered in collaboration with the Stanford Educational Leadership Initiative. 

Who are we looking for? 

Ideal candidates are motivated by the potential of community colleges to impact the lives of students and to grow the health and vitality of communities. Aspen Fellows aspire to be transformational community college presidents—those who will lead their institutions to achieve significant improvements in student outcomes and greater equity in educational access and success. They possess the willingness to take risks to lead transformational change and are strategic, reform-minded thinkers and innovators. Applicants should aspire to enter a presidency within five years of completing the fellowship.

The Aspen Rising Presidents Fellowship is committed to identifying and developing talented leaders that reflect the diversity of the communities and students that the nations’ community colleges serve, and we strongly encourage applicants from diverse backgrounds and from all groups representative of varying race and ethnicity, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, nationality, culture, religion, and physical abilities. We also encourage applicants from a variety of professional backgrounds, including:

- Campus presidents, provosts, or vice presidents at a community college

- Senior administrators in other higher education institutions or K-12 systems

- Executives from outside of education with deep commitment to ensuring students’ success

 

To apply, please complete all application requirements by December 31, 2019. 

Application requirements:

1.    Applicant Contact Information

2.    President's Recommendation Letter (due with all other materials on 12/31/19)

*Please note that the recommendation letter from the President of your institution is due on December 31, 2019 with the rest of your completed materials. You are able to request the recommendation in section 2 before completing your application, so please feel free to start section 2 as soon as possible.
