Executive Committee

The Executive Committee is comprised of faculty from a variety of U-M departments, schools and colleges. Their counsel is invaluable in helping the institute to chart its course vis-à-vis program and visiting fellows and, along with three outside evaluators, they carry out the difficult job of reviewing applications for and selecting winners of our faculty fellowships.
