CCEE’s Ali Hajbabaie named Provost’s Faculty Fellow

CCEE Associate Professor Ali Hajbabaie was named to the 2024-25 class of Provost’s Faculty Fellows by the Office of the Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost and the Office for Faculty Excellence. 

The Provost’s Faculty Fellows Program supports talented faculty in the exploration of academic leadership roles at the university’s highest levels. Current NC State faculty interested in learning more about academic affairs administration can hone their skills as faculty leaders by working closely with the Provost’s Office staff on projects that are meaningful to them and the university.

The home departments of the faculty members selected as Faculty Fellows will be provided with 25% salary release funds to cover the time commitment required for participation. Fellowships are for a full academic year.

The 2024-25 Faculty Fellows program will be split into two tracks, with the Provost’s Office working in conjunction with the Office for Faculty Excellence, the Office of Global Engagement, and the Shelton Leadership Center. Hajbabaie will work in a team of three as part of the University Leadership Track to address an assigned theme or issue relating to higher education leadership. All fellows will participate in a cohort-based, academic-year-long training program structured around strategy, leadership and cultural competence. 

All fellows will have the opportunity to meet, learn from and be coached by leaders and subject matter experts from across NC State. Additionally, fellows will work toward the completion of a proposal that addresses their assigned theme or issue and advances NC State’s strategic plan. This proposal will be presented to Provost Arden and other senior leaders at the end of the fellowship.
