Kristi Hottenstein, Ph.D. has dedicated her career to advocating higher education and is a sought-after teacher of courses in counseling, higher education, and college success strategies at both graduate and undergraduate levels. She has multiple publications on the impact of federal human subject research regulations on undergraduate research practices.

Now serving as vice chancellor for enrollment management at the University of Michigan-Flint, Hottenstein will have the opportunity to advance her career in higher education, having been named as an American Council on Education (ACE) Fellow for 2019-20.

Nominated by Chancellor Susan E. Borrego, Ph.D., Hottenstein received this opportunity having completed a rigorous nomination process to become one of 39 fellows selected nationally for the 2019-20 academic year. 

“Kristi has a great passion for higher education,” said Borrego. “I have no doubt that both she, and the higher education community will benefit greatly from the fellowship experience.”

Established in 1965, the ACE Fellows Program is designed to strengthen institutions and leadership in American higher education by identifying and preparing faculty and staff for senior positions in college and university administration through its distinctive and intensive nominator-driven, cohort-based mentorship model. More than 2,000 higher education leaders have participated in the ACE Fellows Program with more than 80 percent of fellows having gone on to serve as senior leaders of colleges and universities.

“The ACE Fellows Program epitomizes ACE’s goal of enriching the capacity of leaders to innovate and adapt, and it fuels the expansion of a talented and diverse higher education leadership pipeline,” said Ted Mitchell, president of ACE. “I am truly humbled to have such a career-enriching opportunity as one of this year’s ACE Fellows,” said Hottenstein.  “I look forward to learning as much as I can as part of this esteemed program to continue advocating the benefits of higher education here in Michigan and nationally.”
