Provost Receives Digital Technology Fellowship

Hofstra University Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs Gail Simmons is one of 32 chief academic officers selected to participate in a national higher education program that is exploring how digital technology may increase student retention and academic success, especially among those who are first generation, low income, or students of color.
The Association of Chief Academic Officers’ (ACAO) Digital Fellows Program is designed to provide critical information, effective resources, and tested strategies to help chief academic officers and their faculty understand and adopt high quality digital courseware. Supported by a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the ACAO Fellows Program will additionally curate a rich, public archive of resources on digital learning and related issues to serve the community of chief academic officers (CAOs) who want to leverage digital curricular materials to foster student engagement and enhance learning at their institutions.
