Beginning Sept. 4, she will direct the Council’s professional development programs for higher education institution presidents, chief academic officers and senior leaders in Washington, D.C. ACE is the major coordinating body for the nation’s higher education institutions.
“We’re so pleased to have an established and accomplished individual in the field join our staff,” said Diana Cordova, ACE assistant vice president for Leadership Programs. “Professor Comstock has an impressive background as a leader and convener.”
“I am proud to have the opportunity to help advance a key ACE mission,” Comstock said. “These are challenging times across all sectors of higher education. And, nothing could be more important for advancing the collective higher education mission than investing in the development of senior administrators who will lead their campuses through the changing landscape.”
A professor of organizational communication and leadership in the College of Communication, Comstock is on sabbatical from her role as provost and vice president of academic affairs. She has been at Butler since July 2008.
In her blog “Advancing the Higher Education Agenda,” she writes about the relationship between quality higher education and issues of affordability, globalization, civic engagement and practical relevance.
