UNIVERITY PARK, Pa. — Shelley Stoffels, associate dean for faculty in the Penn State College of Engineering and professor of civil and environmental engineering, was named a fellow of the Big Ten Academic Alliance (BTAA)’s Academic Leadership Program

The BTAA is the academic consortium of the Big Ten universities and the United States’ preeminent model for effective collaboration among research universities. The program focuses on addressing the challenges of academic administration at major research universities. Through the program, participants who have demonstrated exceptional ability and administrative promise can further develop their leadership and managerial skills. Fellows are appointed to one-year terms, and funding is provided by the participating institutions.

Stoffels and five others across Penn State were selected for the program based on their significant contributions and further potential for University leadership.

Over the course of the 2022-23 academic year, the fellows will participate in two in-person seminars at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and Penn State, in addition to a virtual seminar scheduled to take place via Zoom in January and February 2023.
