Alumni Fellows Program
The College of Education Alumni Fellows

Purpose
1. To stimulate greater activity and identify between prominent alumni and the University community, faculty, students and administration.

2. To add a dimension to the academic curriculum not otherwise available in the traditional college classroom through close contact among eminent alumni, undergraduate students, graduate students, faculty, and University administration.

The Program
The Alumni Fellows Program, which began in 1973, is a continuing annual project financed by the Colleges of the University and Penn State Alumni Association. The Board of Trustees has specified the Alumni Fellows title as a permanent, lifelong designation. The program is designed to invite Alumni Fellows - prominent and outstanding alumni, leaders in their fields - to return to specific Colleges of the University to lend their expertise through informal contacts with students, faculty and administrators of the Colleges. A Fellow need not be a graduate of the specific College that wishes to sponsor him or her, but should be a individual whose professional accomplishments have broad appeal to the faculty and students in a particular College and, when possible, to the University community as a whole. The period of the Fellow's stay may vary from two-three days to a week, depending upon the wish of the College, and it is hoped they will be asked to participate in classes, informal discussions and public lectures. Frequently, Fellows debunk cherished myths of success. Often they hand out practical advice on how to acquire necessary skills. Sometimes they turn students around and point them toward unconsidered goals. Unfailingly, they stimulate thought, debate and action.

Nominations may be made only by the dean of the College.
