The American Council on Education (ACE) selected 33 emerging college and university leaders for the 2016-17 class of ACE Fellows, which includes Dr. Costas Spirou, interim associate provost for academic affairs and director of graduate studies. Spirou was the only administrator selected from a Georgia institution to serve as an ACE Fellow for 2016-2017.
His latest book, “Building the City of Spectacle: Mayor Richard M. Daley and the Remaking of Chicago” (with D. Judd) will be published by Cornell University Press this fall. Spirou maintains an active public scholarship agenda and his activities have received support from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Spencer Foundation, the Library of Congress, the Ford Foundation and the Sam Walton Foundation.
Established in 1965, the ACE Fellows Program—the longest running leadership development program in the United States—focuses on identifying and preparing the next generation of senior leadership for the nation’s colleges and universities.
