This past year, Professor Marculescu was one of 18 women engineering professors chosen to participate in the Executive Leadership in Academic Technology and Engineering (ELATE) program hosted by Drexel University. ELATE was established under the International Center for Executive Leadership in Academics within the Institute for Women’s Health and Leadership at Drexel’s College of Medicine.
According to the ELATE website, “ELATE is a one-year, part-time leadership development program designed for women faculty in the STEM fields. Its curriculum combines challenging in-residence sessions with immersive tasks at Fellows’ home institutions. The year culminates with a presentation of an Institutional Action Project designed to increase institutional visibility as a leader while advancing an important initiative and to enhance skills of project development and strategy execution through application at a departmental and school level.”
