Suzanne O’Driscoll, Shenandoah University’s Vice President for Student Affairs and Dean of Students, was named an American Council on Education Fellow for the next academic year.

The ACE Fellows Program has worked towards strengthening America’s colleges and universities by identifying and preparing faculty, staff, and administrators for senior positions at their schools through a cohort-based mentorship model.

Dr. O’Driscoll will visit campuses throughout the country, take part in retreats, and learning opportunities with the goal of providing years of on-the-job experience in one condensed year.

ACE Fellows will work alongside leaders at their placement institutions and those colleges and universities will benefit from a leader with a fresh perspective.

The program began in 1965 and has prepared over 2,500 leaders in education at over 1,600 institutions across the country.
