The College of Arts, Sciences, Business and Education Dean’s Fellows Program is designed to enhance academic leadership development for current and future academic leaders at Winston-Salem State University. Dean’s Fellows maintain their current professional commitments during the academic year while taking advantage of opportunities to learn and gain broad exposure to academic administration.

The Dean’s Fellows Program is designed for tenured faculty members, including department chairs and academic directors, who are interested in learning more about academic administration and interested in advancing the academic mission of the College and university. Dean’s Fellows work closely with the Dean of the College in creating a custom yearlong leadership experience designed to address areas of professional development while advancing novel solutions to strategic issues facing the College and university community.
