SPRINGFIELD, Mo., Aug. 7, 2012 — Drury vice president of enrollment management Dawn Hiles has earned an American Council on Education (ACE) fellowship for the 2012-2013 academic year. Hiles is just the second Drury employee to earn an ACE fellowship. Robert Wyatt, the former director of the Breech School of Business, was the other. She is one of 57 people to earn an ACE fellowship this school year.
Hiles will spend twelve weeks over the fall and spring semesters at Washington University in St. Louis. During the course of her one-week visits, Hiles will take part in cabinet deliberations and Washington University Chancellor Mark Wrighton and Chief of Staff Robert Wild will mentor her. Hiles is the first ACE Fellow that Washington University has ever hosted.
The American Council on Education Fellows Program is a one-year comprehensive leadership development exercise that condenses on-the-job leadership training and skills development into an intensive time frame. The program is based on the premise that the exchange of ideas and best practices will benefit all involved.
“Dawn’s experience will be an opportunity for all of us to learn from the knowledge she gains at Wash. U.,” said Drury President Todd Parnell.
