Director of Client Services Catherine Yang Named Frye Institute Fellow

May 5, 2003

WALTHAM, Mass. - Catherine Yang, director of Client Services at Bentley College, was named as a 2003 Frye Institute Fellow. Yang, one of only 46 chosen from around the world, will attend the intensive, two-week residential program at Emory University in Atlanta this June.

Participants were chosen to have "a commitment to, and talent for, leadership within higher education." The group, with participants from around the U.S. and as far away as South Africa, reflects the variety of backgrounds and diverse expertise that constitute higher education. Through presentations by recognized leaders in higher education and society, seminars, group projects, and readings, participants will study and analyze the leadership challenges stemming from the changing context and complexity of higher education. The program will pay special attention to the implications of the growing power of information technology to transform the means of research, teaching, and scholarly communication.

Following the two-week session, participants will conduct a year-long practicum to explore, within their own institutional environment, the issues and questions raised during the Institute. The results of the practicum will be shared in a short seminar in June 2004. Yang will study assessment of the mobile computing program at Bentley.

"I am very excited for the opportunity and flattered to be accepted," said Yang. "The work on my practicum will hopefully benefit the college through this program."

"I can't think of a better person to be accepted into this program," said Bentley Vice Provost and CIO Traci Logan, who nominated Yang. "She is a gem at this institution, and this program will allow her to examine the college's mobile computing program in the context of national trends."
