"Indiana University Bloomington each year selects faculty members with distinguished leadership ability to participate in the Academic Leadership Program (ALP) sponsored by the Committee on Institutional Cooperation (CIC), a consortium of the 11 universities of the Big Ten conference plus the University of Chicago.
Academic Leadership Program fellows for the 2010-11 academic year include Yvette Alex-Assensoh of the Department of Political Science, Howard S. Rosenbaum of the School of Library and Information Science, Michael Rushton of the School of Public and Environmental Affairs and Andrea S. Wiley of the Department of Anthropology. Faculty members are nominated for ALP participation and chosen because their records of scholarship and significant university service point to their growing achievements as academic leaders.
Howard S. Rosenbaum is the associate dean and an associate professor of information science in the School of Library and Information Science (SLIS), where he has been on the faculty since 1993. He is the director of the Master of Information Science program and a co-director of the Graduate Certificate in Information Architecture program in SLIS. He studies social informatics, e-business, information architecture and community networking. In 2005, he published the book Information Technologies in Human Contexts: Learning from Organizational and Social Informatics with Steve Sawyer and the late Rob Kling. Rosenbaum serves on several editorial boards and conference program committees and has presented his work at the American Society for Information Science and Technology, the Association for Information Systems, the Association of Internet Researchers, HCI International, and elsewhere. He is a fellow at the Rob Kling Center for Social Informatics at IU. Rosenbaum teaches classes on digital entrepreneurship, information systems design, and intellectual freedom. He has been recognized often for excellence in teaching and for the innovative use of technology in education receiving the Frederic Bachman Lieber Memorial Award for Teaching Excellence in 2005, a state-wide MIRA Award for Technological Innovation in Education from Techpoint in 2003, the Indiana Partnership for Statewide Education Award for Innovation in Teaching with Technology in 2002, and was one of the first SBC Fellows at IU in 2000. He is the recipient of the 2009 Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Leadership Award…
The Committee on Institutional Cooperation and the Academic Leadership Program: Throughout the CIC's 52 years of effective voluntary cooperation, it has proved to be an effective mechanism for enabling its members to accomplish more by working collectively. The primary objective of the Academic Leadership Program is to develop the leadership and managerial skills of faculty who have demonstrated exceptional ability and administrative promise."
