The Colonial Academic Alliance office will move to the campus of Elon University in Elon, N.C. beginning July 1, 2016. The Colonial Academic Alliance was most recently headquartered at Towson University, and the offices have been located on several different campuses over the past decade.
“We’re excited to work with the Colonial Academic Alliance,” said Steven House, Provost and Executive Vice President of Elon University. “Under the leadership of Lindsey Interlante, the Alliance is working on several new initiatives to advance innovative teaching and entrepreneurship across institutions. Elon is proud to provide the resources to support Lindsey, as well as the future Associate Director of the Alliance.”
“We look forward to being a part of the Elon community and continuing to build relationships across the Alliance to implement impactful programming for faculty, staff and students,” said Interlante, who has served as Executive Director of the Colonial Academic Alliance since December, 2014. “We appreciate Towson University’s generosity in hosting us for the past couple of years.”
The Colonial Academic Alliance recently held its annual Undergraduate Research Conference on the campus of the College of William and Mary. The event allowed more than 80 students to present their research projects, network with faculty and staff members, and take part in a variety of activities around Colonial Williamsburg.
The Colonial Academic Alliance will conduct its Pedagogy Summit at Drexel University on October 27-28, 2016. New programming in the field of entrepreneurship is also being established.
