Professor Dan Jiao has been named an ELATE Fellow. She was among the 21 women faculty from institutions across the country selected as the 2014-2015 class of Fellows of Executive Leadership in Academic Technology and Engineering (ELATE at Drexel®), a national leadership program for women in the academic STEM fields.

ELATE at Drexel is a one year, part time program that focuses on increasing personal and professional leadership effectiveness, leading and managing change initiatives within institutions, using strategic finance and resource management to enhance organizational missions, and creating a network of exceptional women who bring organizational perspectives and deep personal capacity to the institutions and society they serve. Facilitated by leaders in the fields of STEM research and leadership development, the curriculum includes classroom lessons and activities, online instruction and discussion, and on-the-job application at each Fellow’s home institution.

Prof. Jiao just completed her first week-long in-residence session of the ELATE program held in Lafayette Hill, PA in Aug. 2-8, and found the learning experiences very eye-opening and rewarding. Professor Jiao thanks the support from ECE and College of Engineering that makes this possible.
