The fellows are part of ASU’s Office of University Initiatives (UI) and get the chance to work in a very distinct intrapreneurial office culture. They spend time gaining a better understanding of university administration, institutional transformation, the role of higher education institutions and the development of meaningful university-wide programs. In addition, the fellows meet with ASU students, faculty, staff and community members to learn more about needs and opportunities within the university and community. Fellows make connections within and outside of ASU between people, projects and resources. View our UI 101 Handbook for an introduction on our office and our culture.
Examples of projects that fellows might conduct include:
Fellows complete a 13-month placement in the Office of University Initiatives (July 16, 2018 - August 9, 2019).
In addition to working with ASU students, faculty and community members to better understand higher educational ecosystems and institutional transformation, incoming fellows work collaboratively with outgoing fellows during a one-month transition period in July. Incoming fellows will also have the opportunity to make connections within and outside of ASU between people, projects and resources. This inter- and intra-organizational collaboration helps fellows develop valuable cross-sector leadership skills and strategies.
The fellowship is a full-time position (40+ hours per week) with a competitive salary of $55,000-$70,000. Additional university benefits include health insurance, vacation and sick leave, paid holidays and reduced tuition. View additional benefits here.
