The Association of Public and Land-grant (APLU) Universities’ Council on Research (CoR), which is comprised of senior research officers at the nation’s public research universities, has named seven rising research leaders to its second cohort of CoR Research Leader Fellows. The fellowship enables individuals who aspire to become vice presidents, vice chancellors, or vice provosts for research to develop critical new knowledge and skills. The fellows, who join the eight inaugural fellows selected in 2017, were selected earlier this summer and introduced at the 2018 CoR Summer Meeting in Bozeman, Montana.
