Dr. James Jr. headshotDr. James was nominated by his mentor, Dr. Rob Rescigno, Assistant Vice President of Academic Affairs, for the one-year program. Participants are chosen based on ability, demonstrated leadership, and a keen interest in their community, with a commitment to making a difference.

He is especially interested in organizational behavior, organizational strategy, organizational learning and workplace learning. His fellowship begins in February of 2020.
