Celebrating 25 years, Deputy Provost Margaret E. Newell awarded certificates of completion to the Administrative Fellows Program’s class of 2014 earlier this month. The program, administered by the Office of the Assistant to the President for Institutional Diversity and Equity, offers one year of talent management experience and professional development to mid-career professionals, especially members of underrepresented groups.
In her comments, Newell applauded the graduates of the program for their hard work and the value they added to the University administration during their tenure in the program. She also pointed out that during its 25-year history, the program has been instrumental in creating generations of outstanding leaders.
In her remarks on behalf of the 2014 AFP class, fellow Naniette Coleman, Harvard College assistant director of career services, said, “I am so incredibly proud to be an administrative fellow with all of you. Our strengths and experience overflow. I stand in awe of who we are and all that we might accomplish together.” She also announced that she will leave Harvard next month to begin work on a Ph.D at the University of California, Berkeley.
Newell and Lisa Coleman, chief diversity officer and special assistant to the president, presented the certificates of completion to the fellows at a ceremony in the Faculty Club.
